Abstract: Modeling of mechanical systems has come a long way in recent years. They have been shown to be able to effectively aid engineers and design engineers to model, simulate and analyze many engineering functions. These modeling applications varied from simple solid objects for manufacturing to complex movable equipment. The application of engineering modeling to flexible components, especially tracked based, has shown to be one of the most complicated and difficult to achieve. Furthermore, the interaction between the vehicle, flexible tracks and the terrain would pose more complexity for the simulation. However, similar to other modeling purposes, if track could be accurately modeled on any modeling software we could save cost and time from the engineering process. The main goal of this project is to design a new robot mobility system that would best perform for Tech-X Challenge. The TechX Challenge is a competition organized by DSTA to develop greater indigenous capacity for innovation in research and development to sharpen the technological edge for Singapore’s defense. Essentially this mobility system must be able to best perform in both indoor and outdoor terrains which also reduce impact force and vibration on the vehicle body. The design will be modeled, simulated and analyzed using LMS Virtual Lab modeling software. This software allows sophisticated modeling of the design and provides accurate analysis of its performances. At the same time, changes could be implemented into the modeled design to improve its performance. Since this is a preliminary design and use of LMS Virtual Lab software, possible improvements can be done by coming out with better designs after analyzing finding the faults of the old design.
