One Is Enough!
Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics
We postulate that multi-wheel statically-stable mobile robots for operation in human environments are an evolutionary dead end. Robots of this class tall enough to interact meaningfully with people must have low centers of gravity, overly wide bases of support, and very low accelerations to avoid tipping over. Accordingly, we are developing an inverse of this type of mobile robot that is the height, width, and weight of a person, having a high center of gravity, that balances dynamically on adoi:10.1007/978-3-540-48113-3_30 dblp:conf/isrr/LauwersKH05 fatcat:6ixvmysixnh47onhiktnmep7fu
