Abstract

The manufacturing technology of projectiles has become very mature and common in the market, but currently, research on projectile mobile robots is still in the theoretical stage. This article introduces a robot that can move and launch projectiles in all directions. This unique design structure allows the robot to move flexibly in complex environments and launch projectiles when necessary to meet the needs of special tasks. The goal is to design and implement a projectile launch robot with high maneuverability, autonomy, and difficulty. This article analyzes the requirements of the robot control system, points out the hardware architecture and operation process of the omnidirectional mobile robot, and describes the functional implementation of the robot. This article also conducted projectile launch experiments and omnidirectional mobility experiments on the robot. It tests its movement performance under various surfaces and angles, as well as the accuracy of projectile launch. The experimental results show that the average accuracy of the robot projectile launcher is 94%, and the omnidirectional mobile robot can launch projectiles from different angles, achieving free movement in both vertical and horizontal directions. The design of this type of robot provides new possibilities for the widespread application of robotics technology.
