Abstract

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