This report documents the RoboSim Physical Model of the MarxBot. The model was developed based on the paper “The marXbot, a miniature mobile robot opening new perspectives for the collective-robotic research” published here. The model is available for download here.
We have modelled three modules of the MarxBot, which are composed to form the robot.
The base module uses a Treel p-model to avoid duplication.
The Range and Bearings module uses indexed containment relations to avoid duplication as well.
Finally, the Rotating Scanner module defines a separate p-model for the long range infrared sensor, and composes it using indexed containments to include four copies in the p-model.
This model was created using the RoboSim Physical Modelling Graphical Editor version 126.96.36.199009231212.
