Unformatted text preview: Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Mechanical Engineering 2.12 Introduction to Robotics Problem Set No.8 Out: November 21, 2005 Due: November 30, 2005 Problem 1 Shown below is a vehicle similar to the 2.12 mobile robot having a pair of powered wheels and a frictionless caster. The radius of the wheels is r=3 cm , while the distance between the two wheels is 2 b=20 cm . The angular velocity of the right wheel is , and that of the left wheel is r ω l ω . Each powered wheel is equipped with a shaft encoder to measure the angular velocity.
