Title (EN) ADAPTABLE VEHICLE
(FR) VÉHICULE ADAPTABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present disclosure is directed at an adaptable vehicle that includes a pair of primary rollers for rolling along a surface on which the vehicle is travelling. At least one of the rollers is rotatably powered. The adaptable vehicle also includes two sets of linking arms, one of which is coupled to one of the rollers and the other of which is coupled to the other of the rollers such that moving the sets of linking arms can shift the axes of rotation of the rollers without impeding rotation of the rollers. The sets of linking arms are connected to and rotatable about an actuatable hub. Actuation of the hub causes at least one set of the linking arms to rotate about the hub and shifts the axis of rotation of at least one of the rollers to allow the vehicle to adapt to its surroundings.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un véhicule adaptable qui comprend une paire de roulettes primaires pour rouler le long d'une surface sur laquelle le véhicule se déplace. Au moins une des roulettes est motorisée pour tourner. Le véhicule adaptable comprend aussi deux jeux de bras de liaison, dont l'un est accouplé à l'une des roulettes et l'autre est accouplé à l'autre roulette de telle sorte que le mouvement des jeux de bras de liaison peut changer les axes de rotation des roulettes sans entraver la rotation de celles-ci. Les jeux de bras de liaison sont rattachés à un moyeu que l'on peut actionner et peuvent tourner autour de celui-ci. La mise en marche du moyeu fait tourner au moins un jeu des bras de liaison autour du moyeu et change l'axe de rotation d'au moins une des roulettes pour permettre au véhicule de s'adapter à son environnement.
