Rover Wheel Analysis

Rover Wheel Analysis

The rover wheel analysis project analyzes different wheel and grouser designs using methods developed at CMU. We have a wheel test rig that is capable of measuring 6 axis forces on a wheel, while using a camera to quantify soil particles as they move.

Additional Information

We have several simulants that can be put in the test rig for simulating wheel interactions on different planetary locations.
