2021 arXiv   pre-print
To do so, we present a caster-wheel-aware term that is compatible with MPC-based control methods, leveraging the existence of caster wheels in the motion planning stage.  ...  Differential drive mobile robots often use one or more caster wheels for balance.  ...  Contributions We present a caster-wheel-aware term that can be embedded in MPC-based navigation algorithms, such as trajectory tracking or path following, and is directly applicable to any mobile-robot  ...
