Rahman, Ataur and Mohiuddin, A. K. M. and Ismail, Ahmad Faris and Yahya, Azmi and Hossain, Altab (2010) Development of hybrid electrical air-cushion tracked vehicle for swamp peat. Journal of Terramechanics, 47. pp. 45-54. ISSN 0022-4898


This study presents a developed hybrid electrical air-cushion tracked vehicle (HETAV) for the transportation operation of agricultural and industrial goods on the swamp peat terrain bearing capacity of 5 kN/m2. The vehicle’s design parameters are optimized by using the developed mathematical models which are made based on the kinematics and dynamics behaviors of the vehicle. A set of sensors are used with this vehicle to activate the air-cushion system and battery pack recharging system. The vehicle’s air-cushion system is protected by a novel-design auto-adjusting supporting system. The air-cushion dragging motion resistance is overcome with additional thrust which is developed by a propeller. The vehicle is equipped with the air-cushion system to make the vehicle ground contact pressure 5 kN/m2.
