Research on Stability of a 2 DOF Articulated Vehicle
In many fields’ rough-terrain vehicles, e.g., mineral exploration vehicles, military applications vehicles, vehicles that can move on rough terrains are desired. The ability of obstacle-climbing was affected by stability of vehicle. The stability of vehicle is closely related to the body attitude, which composes with a number of bodies. For this reason, in this paper, a wheeled mobile vehicle with 2 DOF articulated frame (2DWAV), for example, the new concept of correlative stability is presented. The stability of 2DWAV was analyzed based on static and dynamic in this paper, when it was driving on rough terrain. Finally, the simulation and experiment on rough terrain are carried out.
