Planetary Rover – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Planetary Rover

A model of a planetary rover on rough terrain is simulated in an extensive multidomain environment. Various behaviours are simulated, including rover motion, wheel/soil interaction, and energy consumption. Further analysis is possible in Maple, allowing for power optimization and path planning.
