Self-propelled automatic chassis of Lunokhod-1: History of creation in episodes
This report reviews the most important episodes in the history of designing the self-propelled automatic chassis of the first mobile extraterrestrial vehicle in the world, Lunokhod-1. The review
Quality of the locomotion system in planetary rovers
Methods that take account of the properties of the propulsion system and the terrain (along with their interactions) are outlined, for use in quality assessment of the locomotion system in planetary
Proposal of walking to prevent a fall of a planetary exploration legged rover using effect of loose soil caused by a propagation of vibration
In this study, a walking method which prevents to a fall of the planetary exploration legged rover is proposed. In the proposed walking method, the leg is sunk by giving vibration to the ground. The
