Title:
CONNECTABLE TRAVEL VEHICLE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/045065
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A plurality of single autonomous travel robots are connected, whereby stepping performance is improved. In a connected mode, two autonomous travel robots 100 and 200 of the same type are connected by an arm 300. The autonomous travel robot 100 is disposed on the rear side, and the autonomous travel robot 200 is disposed on the front side. Furthermore, it is possible to connect three or more of the same type of autonomous travel robot via separate arms 300. In the connected mode: when the front autonomous travel robot is surmounting an obstacle, the rear autonomous travel robot pushes the front autonomous travel robot via the arm, thereby assisting the front autonomous travel robot to surmount the obstacle; and when the front autonomous travel robot has surmounted the obstacle, the front autonomous travel robot pulls the rear autonomous travel robot via the arm, thereby assisting the rear autonomous travel robot to surmount the obstacle.
