omnidirectional vehicle, Omni-Disc
In this paper, we focus on a new omni-directional vehicle "The Vuton-II" that was developed for use as a transport vehicle to operate within factories, hospitals and warehouses. This vehicle is composed of using three or more "Omni-Discs". Its mechanism ensures that individual wheels of the assembly are always aligned in the same direction, and can always roll freely. The Vuton-II is designed to be low in cost, short in stature, and to bear a reasonably high payload.
