A propulsion system that does not require any interaction with the external environment in the form of grasping or sticking is proposed. This internal propulsion system for a robot body operates by the use of the frictional force between the body and the environment, and the reaction force from the controlled acceleration of a mass. The dynamics and control issues of a rotating lever attached to a mass are quantified and the results from a prototype are compared. The lateral progress of a system using this as a drive method are analyzed. © 2009 IEEE.
