Abstract:

Systems analysis is applied to off-the-road locomotion. Existing knowledge and literature on terrain-vehicle systems are reviewed and integrated from the practical engineering viewpoint. Facilities and equipment required for systems evaluation are described and its management discussed. Mathematical models allow speculation on future developments including terrain measurements, soil-vehicle interface definition, design and performance parameters optimization, and cost effectiveness. Related problems and possible developments in agriculture, earth moving, and industrial and military operations are considered.
