DARPA GXV-T Demonstration Of Hybrid Wheel-Track

As part of DARPA’s Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program (GXV-T), a team from Carnegie Mellon University National Robotics Engineering Center created a hybrid wheel-track which can configure between a traditional round wheel and a triangular, tank-like track in seconds. The intent behind this design is to allow optimal mobility between hard and soft terrain as required, while still inside the same vehicle.

The Ground X-Vehicle Technologies program itself was launched to find ways to “improve mobility, survivability, safety, and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling on armor.”
