  • a body;

    a plurality of hybrid leg-wheels, disposed around the body for carrying the body moving on a working surface; and

    a plurality of driving mechanisms, disposed between the corresponding hybrid leg-wheels and the body, wherein each driving mechanism includes a driving axle connecting the corresponding hybrid leg-wheels and the body, each driving mechanism provides the corresponding hybrid leg-wheel a rotational degree of freedom and a translational degree of freedom, the rotational degree of freedom and the translational degree of freedom are driven independently, the rotational degree of freedom allows the hybrid leg-wheels rotating along an axis of the driving axle, the translational degree of freedom allows the hybrid leg-wheels translating relative to the driving axle, and the direction of the axis is substantially perpendicular to the translational direction.
