Structural Analysis of Rocker Bogie Using Different Materials

Authors(4) :-Banken K. Chauhan, Jenish S. Morawala, Shivam A. Anjeerwala, Abhi V. Gandhi

In this paper the authors discuss about the Structural analysis of Rocker-Bogie Mechanism using different materials. It is clear that rovers are significant vehicles of today’s solar system exploration. Most of the rover designs have been recognized for Mars and Moon surface in order to recognize the geological history of the territory. Their various mechanisms have found a prevalent usage in mobile robotics. Among these we have discussed about Rocker-Bogie mechanism, which can be used for rover suspension design. We have analyzed and obtain values of deformation
