Abstract

Request of sustainable personalized transport is growing in different areas of service robotics, for aid to mobility of elderly and motion disabled people, for freight delivery in urban environment, for passengers transport in restricted zones as airports and greens because of the small dimensions, tiny footprint, on-board intelligence, friendly human car interface and zero environmental impact. The paper studies the feasibility of an electric vehicle with four non steering wheels considering as driving principle the skid steering that has been mainly used for tracked vehicles.The vehicle is a complex nonlinear multi body system with numerous mobilities either in stiff and in elastic motion. For evaluating the vehicle performances, the maneuverability and stability behavior it is needed the availability of a model able to describe all the significant motion modes in different operative conditions. The paper presents the PICAV model and some results of the simulation campaign that demonstrated its soundness and reliability.
