Omni-directional wheels have been mainly applied to various types of vehicle operating over smooth, flat surfaces but no work appears to have been done in connection with the performance of such vehicles fitted with these wheels when traversing the extremely rough, and soft and hard surface terrains to be found on Mars, the Moon, or even on Earth. The object of the research study was, therefore, the design and testing of an omni-directional wheeled vehicle for “crosscountry” use.
