In this thesis a new ball structure for ballbot Rezero is investigated with a load capacity of up to 100 kg. Furthermore low weight and a good form stability is desirable to enable easy actuation of the ball. Also the ball should provide enough friction on the ground to avoid slipping and a damping property so that small bumps like carpet edges are absorbed. With help of functional analysis a new ball version is found which consists of a inner form stable hollow sphere and an outer friction providing coating. This structure is achieved by using Polyamide-12 (PA-12) for the inner and Polyurethane (PU) for the outer part yielding the above mentioned specifications. This new ball structure with the high load capacity lays the foundation for using Rezero for transporting purposes. Show more
