A tracked vehicle produces a pressure no more than 3 psi on the ground by increasing the number of contact points on the inner surface of the track. The stiffness of the track is also selected to minimize bowing between the idler wheels or rollers. The track is therefore kept substantially straight between the rollers so increase the efficiency associated with transferring power to track. The drive sprocket is positioned above the ground so as to eliminate complexity in the design and yet effectively transmit power to the tracks. Positioning the drive sp...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A vehicle for traversing a surface comprising:a frame and an undercarriage a first suspension mount attaching the undercarriage to the frame;a first end axle and a second end axle fixedly attached to the undercarriage,a flat track further comprising:an inner surface, said inner surface including a plurality of driving lugs; andan outer surface having a pattern for gripping;a driver sprocket for said track, said driver sprocket fixed with respect to the undercarriage, said driver sprocket engaging at least some of said plural...
