    The dynamics of a spherical robot of combined type consisting of a spherical shell and a pendulum attached at the center of the shell is considered. At the end of the pendulum a rotor is installed. For this system we carry out a stability analysis for a partial solution which in absolute space corresponds to motion along a circle with constant velocity. Regions of stability of a partial solution are found depending on the orientation of the spherical robot during the motion, its velocity and the radius of the circle traced out by the point of contact.

    This paper is concerned with the rolling motion of a dynamically asymmetric unbalanced ball (Chaplygin top) in a gravitational field on a plane under the assumption that there is no slipping and spinning at the point of contact. We give a description of strange attractors existing in the system and discuss in detail the scenario of how one of them arises via a sequence of perioddoubling bifurcations. In addition, we analyze the dynamics of the system in absolute space and show that in the presence of strange attractors in the system the behavior of the point of contact considerably depends on the characteristics of the attractor and can be both chaotic and nearly quasi-periodic.

    In this paper we consider the control of a dynamically asymmetric balanced ball on a plane in the case of slipping at the contact point. Necessary conditions under which a control is possible are obtained. Specific algorithms of control along a given trajectory are constructed.

    This paper investigates the possibility of the motion control of a ball with a pendulum mechanism with non-holonomic constraints using gaits — the simplest motions such as acceleration and deceleration during the motion in a straight line, rotation through a given angle and their combination. Also, the controlled motion of the system along a straight line with a constant acceleration is considered. For this problem the algorithm for calculating the control torques is given and it is shown that the resulting reduced system has the first integral of motion.
