Article Preview

This article describes the process of designing and testing of shaped wheels for a mobile robotic stairclimbing system. It explains the basic principle of the shaped wheel and a synthesis of the shape and dimensions of the wheel segment for specified dimensions of the stairs. Before building a reduced prototype of a chassis with the designed wheels, simulations of its virtual model were performed in the ADAMS simulation environment. Functionality of the suggested solution was verified by building a prototype and its testing. The article is concluded with description of the achieved results and other research activities planned in the sphere of locomotive subsystems for stairclimbing.
