Abstract. The geometric forms of relative motions are the geometric art forms developed by the researcher over the recent years. This study is aimed at probing one type of the relative motion: wheelbase-based motion, developing a systematic model to control its motion parameters, analyzing how the parameters affect its process of motion, and discovering the geometric art forms generated by computing the parameters. Wheelbase-based Motion suggests that the trajectory appears in a straight and direct pattern of motion, moving back and forth in a twodimensional space from the beginning to the termination. In this case, this study designs and develops the Relative Motion Creator (RMC) as the study tool to test this wheelbase-based motion so that it may compile the model of wheelbase-based motion, complete its motion structure, and operate its motion parameters.
