Abstract：In this paper, a wheeled mobile robot system consisting of a tractor and N-1 trailers is studied. Based on Kanes approach, the dynamics equations of the system is established, especially the coefficients are computed using recursive algorithm. In this way, the reconstruction of the dynamics is discussed further after the number of the trailers has been changed.
