Treadn Track is a mechanism that enables mobile robots to negotiate different surfaces or obstacles in a simple, practical and cost effective manner. Its leg-track hybrid locomotion mechanism simplifies forwards-backwards and up-down movements by using a track component and telescoping legs.
Treadn Track provides several advantages over wheels, crawler-type vehicles and legged robots as it eliminates conventional track disadvantages, has a high moving efficiency and simplified and compact mechanism that provides a large carrier space. Treadn Track’s simple and efficient mechanism makes it a viable and affordable way to improve the independence, mobility and quality of life of people with disabilities.
