Abstract : "This paper proposes a new energy-saving trajectory planning method for a robot with an inverse ball driven by Mecanum wheels. The slip due to the structure of the ball drive robot is used to formulate the energy consumption. The measured torque pattern is used as a basis to save energy through a proper path-planning process. To change the path of the robot, an improved path-planning algorithm is used to generate an energy-efficient path. Simulations and experiments were performed to demonstrate the efficiency of the approach."
