Improved design of the omnidirectional robotic platform for enhancement of manufacturability and commercialability

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The purpose of this Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), between Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Nomadic Technologies, Inc., has been to produce an improved design of the Omnidirectional Holonomic Platform (OHP) that is easier to manufacture and more suitable for commercialization. The OHP technology was developed by the ORNL. In 1993, it received an R&D-100 award and in 1994, a patent was accepted by the U.S. Patent Office in final form (No. 5,374,879). The technology involves a novel wheel system assembly which, through its corresponding control system, can provide rolling platforms with a full omnidirectional motion capability, including ... continued below

The technology involves a novel wheel system assembly which, through its corresponding control system, can provide rolling platforms with a full omnidirectional motion capability, including simultaneous and independently controlled rotational and translational degrees-of-freedom. The objective of this project has been to pair ORNL`s knowledge of the OHP technology and Nomadic Technologies, Inc.`s experience in manufacturing and market-oriented robotic product development to produce and test an improved design of the OHP.
