Mobile Robotics which operate on a floor or ground usually employ wheels.

This is the case for Other Mobility Types of Mobility.

There exist many other types of mobility, such as hopping, slithering, among others types using different modes of movement.

Such mobility types include Hopping robots, where movement occurs by hopping, going airborne, landing and repeating.

Another movement type is a slithering snake side-to-side motion, similar to a fish tail fluke movement.  Not especially effective does to slippage and if used out of the water.

Another type is the inch worm like lift-project-land-contract movement.  Also, not always the most effective mode of transportation.

In conclusion, if you identify a movement by a biological creature, robots can eventually emulate it. 

These usually operate using   two DoF   in the   X-Y   directions in a   3D   work space; thus, they are not   Holonomic.
