Stabilization of a wheeled robotic vehicle

  • V. B. Larin


The paper addresses the problem of synthesizing a stabilization system for a robotic vehicle with two steerable wheels with allowance for dynamic effects. A solution is presented for the case of coasting. The general case of stabilization where dynamic effects are taken into account is examined
