    In this paper, the rest-to-rest motion planning problem of a fluid-actuated spherical robot is studied. The robot is driven by moving a spherical mass within a circular fluid-filled pipe fixed internally to the spherical shell. A mathematical model of the robot is established and two inverse dynamics-based feed-forward control methods are proposed. They parameterize the motion of the outer shell or the internal moving mass as weighted Beta functions. The feasibility of the proposed feed-forward control schemes is verified under simulations.
