Abstract

In future planetary exploration missions, rovers are required to traverse over very rough terrain. On Moon's surface there are covered with soils, which is named regolith. Regolith is easy to slide. Any stack may occur to the the rovers that are running on the regolith. Some reseachers have studies the mobility system for rovers. However the optimal and robust mobility systems have not developed yet. For avoiding stack, this paper proposes a new wheel system. Using the characteristic of soil made a new wheel.
