In this paper, the slope traversability analysis for a planetary exploration rover based on a terramechanics approach is described. In this research, the slope traversability is defined as consisting of both slope climbing and traversing (crossing) capabilities. The authors have investigated traction mechanics between a wheel of a rover and loose soil. Applying our previous works in the wheel-soil interactions to the slope traversability of the rover, two criteria dominating the slope… CONTINUE READING
