  • The selection of vehicle and leg configuration and of power transmission and actuation system configuration for the adaptive suspension vehicle (ASV) are discussed. The ASV will be a proof-of-concept prototype of a proposed class of transportation vehicles for use in terrain that is not passable for conventional vehicles. It uses a legged locomotion princi ple. The machine will not be an autonomous "robot, " in the sense that it will carry an operator. It will, however, have a very high level… CONTINUE READING
