Mobile robot motion control is simplified to a DC motor motion control that may include gear system. The simplest and widespread approach to control the mobile robot motion is the differential drive style, it consists of two in-lines with each a DC motor. Both DC motors are independently powered so the desired movements will rely on how these two DC motors are commanded. Thedevelop design, model and control of Mechatronics mobile robotic system is presented in this paper. The developed robotic system is intended for research purposes as well as for educational process. The model of proposed mobile robot was created and verified using MATLAB-Simulink software.
