Rocker Bogie Mechanism


The Rocker-Bogie design Consist have a no springs and stub axles for every wheel, allowing the rover to climb over obstacles, such as rocks, it was up to twice. It have any suspension system, the hill stability is the limited by the height of the centre of gravity. In which system we use spring tend to tip more easily as the applied load side yields. The mechanism is design to be used at Minimum speed of around 09 cm/s, it was help to avoid the damage of vehicle with minimum shock & it also stable to centre of gravity. The term “rocker” comes from the rocking aspect of the biggest links on every side of the suspension system. The rockers is connected to each other and the vehicle chassis through a differential. Rocker another to the chassis, when one rocker Moves up, the other Moves down. The chassis maintains the Average of pitch angle of all mechanism. One end of a rocker bogie mechanism is fitted with the drive wheel and the other end is connected to a bogie. It is similar to train wagon suspension member. The rocker bogie mechanism has no spring suspension. The rocker bogie mechanism is based on degree of freedom system.in which of rocker bogie mechanism has consist of some mechanism. The rocker bogie mechanism first wheel was the rocker & another wheels are bogie. When rocker moves in their direction then bogie was support & push the rocker. Then the rocker moves very fast at any type of surface. The name of rocker bogie mechanism is rovers. The mars rovers is used NASA. The rocker bogie mechanism & mars rovers are same.
