I’m designing a tracked robot for climbing stairs for my university project. I’m planning to use a rubber track so that it won’t affect the pavement and also provides better traction. Since it is a university project I have to provide design calculations. I’m new to track design and I’m not sure about the procedures involved in it. Is there any standard established procedure for track design?
I’m not sure if it is considered a chain-sprocket design or pulley-belt (Synchronous Belt) design. Any suggestion would be helpful.
