    Abstract

    The objective of this study was to design a new model of wheel shape for increasing climbing ability of slopes and steps. We made a new model using a statics for calculating the ability easily and found that the arc-shaped notch type seems to be the best and implemented to our robot. In this paper, we introduce the detail of the proposed model and simulation results.
