A Holonomic platform is one of the many types of Holonomic drive trains — it can move forward and backward as well as left or right without turning. The Holonomic platform can move in any direction instantaneously unlike conventional four wheeled vehicles.

Holonomic refers to the relationship between controllable, and total degrees of freedom of a robot. If the controllable degree of freedom is equal to total degrees of freedom, then the robot is said to be Holonomic.
