Technology in robotics has improved significantly in recent years. While the majority of research has focused on improving existing methods, it is advantageous to challenge these established methodologies and develop new solutions. This new research centers on a novel method of robot movement design. The proposed model concentrates on a robot containing three steerable wheels, allowing the mobile robot to reach the desired orientation and coordinates with minimal movement. This goal is accomplished by simultaneously moving and rotating the robot while moving in a straight path, unlike the movement provided by standard wheeled vehicles. This method provides greater control of performance and more power of movement on various surfaces, compared to using Omni wheels, which contains the design with the greatest similarity to this proposed method. While this new method may result in added complexity due to the goal-based flexible constraints in speed, wheel rotation, and overall movement, this complication may be mitigated by using appropriate software and hardware.
