Newton-Euler Methodologies: A Unified Framework

Rached Dhaouadi* and Ahmad Abu Hatab

College of Engineering, American University of Sharjah, Sharjah, UAE

Abstract

This paper presents a unified dynamic modeling framework for differential-drive mobile robots (DDMR). Two

formulations for mobile robot dynamics are developed; one is based on Lagrangian mechanics, and the other on

Newton-Euler mechanics. Major difficulties experienced when modeling non-holonomic systems in both methods are

illustrated and design procedures are outlined. It is shown that the two formulations are mathematically equivalent

providing a check on their consistency. The presented work leads to an improved understanding of differential-

drive mobile robot dynamics, which will assist engineering students and researchers in the modeling and design of

suitable controllers for DDMR navigation and trajectory tracking.

The total dynamic equations of the DDMR with the actuators

As it can be observed, equation (62) is similar to equation (47),

which was obtained using the Lagrangian approach. Note that in the

Newton-Euler approach the mass and inertias of the wheels were not

taken into consideration, and the robot is considered as one rigid body.

Therefore both formulations are equivalent if the inertia and mass

parameters are defined as

M = mc (72)

J = Ic (73)

Next, using the forward kinematics equations (15) and (16), we can Figure 4: DDMR Dynamic Model.
