A mobile robot must move without unacceptable rapid motion. To address this issue, we propose a preview controller using the time-based spline approach. With this approach, it is also important to plan an adequate trajectory. Here an approach to trajectory planning which has the trajectory determination strategy via a virtual manipulator is proposed. Numerical and experimental results are shown to confirm the proposed algorithm.
