 Abstract
This paper presents a control method of a mecanum wheel-based omni-directional electric board using driver weight shift. Instead of a steering device such as a joystick or a remote controller, 3 degree-of-freedom driving command for translational and rotational motion of the omni-directional electric board is generated from position of center of gravity measured from weight distribution. The weight shifting motion is not only a driving command but also an intuitive motion to overcome inertial forces. The overall control structure is presented with experimental results to prove validity of the proposed method.
