Abstract

This work offers a new chassis design, namely the wheel-track, represents a mathematical model of this chassis, and also proves the advantage of the proposed design when driving the vehicle on arbitrary terrain - rough off-road. The proposed approach can find application in the design of unmanned research mechanisms for other planets (Mars Rovers, Lunar Rovers etc.), also for design of robots and transport of rescuers at liquidation of consequences of natural or technological disasters. The article presents the analysis of the requirements for the chassis of extraterrestrial research unmanned mechanism demonstrated high compliance of the proposed approach. The analysis of the requirements for the chassis of extraterrestrial research unmanned mechanism demonstrated high compliance of the proposed approach. We proposed and investigated a mathematical model of wheel-track, demonstrated the optimization of the proposed mathematical model to machine computing, demonstrated the flexibility and scalability of the mathematical model. The proposed design is an attempt to combine the advantages of a walking and wheel types of travel in one mechanism.
