Abstract : Numerous studies on mobility of tracked vehicles such as bulldozer and crawler tracters have been performed. The stationary turning motions of these vehicles have been reported recently. Most of these studies have been concerned with trafficability and traction mechanics in vehicle terrain interaction because these vehicles are used mainly in off-road motion at low speeds. However, there has not been any reported studies dealing with the controllability and stability of vehicles at high speeds.
