Active Suspension

This paper introduces an edge-controlled autonomous robot with a gyro-stabilized active suspension system in form of a hybrid quadrupedal wheel drive mechanism, capable of detecting free pathways with an angular resolution of 1 degree and steering the robot in that direction. This features the computer-aided prototyping of the robot as a complete multisensory mechatronic system. Also, several algorithmic models were used in developing the robot’s software, which includes suspension control and pathfinding algorithms.
