Abstract
Personal mobility vehicles

We have developed the RT-Mover series of mobile robots because of the strong demand for mobile robot platforms for use on rough terrain. They look like ordinary four-wheel vehicles but are mobile enough to operate on targeted rough terrain encountered in daily life. The advantage of this series is that individual wheels negotiate obstacles with their own leg motion mechanisms.
