Wheel Assembly

The wheel assembly attaches the wheels to the motors and mounts the motors to the rest of the rocker-bogie suspension system that makes up the robot chassis.

Wheels picture


  • The flexible wheels allow for high traction as they deform around objects, improving climbing performance
  • Drive motors chosen to handle the high torque that the system sees, trading off speed for improved climbing performance
