Abstract

The University of Minnesota's Scout is a small cylindrical robot capable of rolling and jumping. Models describing the robot's motion are developed. These models can be employed for motion prediction and simulation. The results suggest that the determining factor of the Scout's behavior is the length of the winch cable.
