This paper relates to a design that involves driving a four wheeled vehicle in highly graded planes. The primary use of the design discussed in this paper is to allow four wheeled rovers to climb highly inclined terrain and have a suspension system in place to provide frictional force for the wheels to come down and provide traction over the ground. Such a design allows the rover to travel unmapped terrain.
