  • Abstract Motion in uneven terrain is difficult for most vehicles which are operated by human. It is properly very difficult for the wheelchairs and their users in particular. If the wheelchairs move in rough and unstructured terrain, their locomotion will be limited. So it’s important to find one efficient solution to solve this problem. 
    Engineering design methods offer an efficient answer to solve this problem. Engineering design methods are a valuable contribution to the engineering design literature. With this method, we can effectively design and make what we want.
    This paper presents a three-wheeled mobile tracked vehicle that is able to move on even terrain and uneven terrain, and climb up and down the stairs. This vehicle is equipped with a pair of tracked arms that can accurately change the robot shapes for different terrains. So the vehicle becomes possible for crossing the obstacles, climbing up and down the stairs by waving two tracked arms. The vehicle has three riding modes, Even, Uneven and Climbing mod. The systems can easily control the vehicle for choosing the riding modes by using Tablet PC. With its mechanical composition the vehicle can conquer most of terrains.
