The paper deals with the design of the s models of a wheel and belt chassis with improved ability to cross a rugged terrain. This concept of mechatronic systems will have a good ability to overcome obstacles encountered in urban and non-urban environments. With its properties and characteristic features it should be able to adapt to diverse terrain, overcome obstacles such as stairs, slopes, rocks, but also muddy, sandy or slippery surface. The requirements and criteria imposed on this robot will depend on the mentioned properties.
