Background

Overview

4 Wheeled Locomotors are extremely common, owing to their relative ease of manufacture and maintenance and as such, these Locomotors are inexpensive to buy and cheap to produce.

Each wheel is driven by a single high-torque power motor mounted on a stabilised swing-arm.

Cheaper models feature tank-like turning - by driving one set of wheels forward and the other side drives backward, they can turn on the spot more or less. More advanced models feature independently rotating wheel hubs, allowing each wheel to spin completely independently. This allows them to "crab" and change course exceedingly rapidly.

They also feature internally spring suspension dampening, allowing each tired wheel to move completely independently of each other.
