The Robotic walking machine

<<<Previous -----||------ Next>>>

Primary intention of the design of  Walking Bridge is to find a method of transporting heavy materials over a rough terrain where wheels cannot roll over. It is also capable of performing work in such an environment. It is a walking robot applicable for heavy material handling & transportation, as a military vehicle or off road vehicle. Also suitable for outer space exploration, when harvesting planetary minerals.


It can travel over rough terrains, climb steep slopes, move on rocks and sand. It can manipulate over minor craters without stepping on or crawling over it, while transporting loads and crews to destinations. The machine is dismentable and can transport by part whenever necessary.

Walking bridge


This is a walking type machine in combination of carriage, and a mobile bridge accompanied by power generator to drive the bridge and carriage alternatively.

The bridge consists of a rigid frame carrying two rail tracks over which the load of the carriage can be drawn forward and backward. Both the bridge and carriage are having retractable legs with foot pads to mount on ground during it’s landing on ground alternatively.

Front and rear ends of the bridge is looped around the pulley attached to traction motor installed in the carriage. So that carriage and bridge are alternatively driven, while the other retract its legs and driven by traction afforded by cables.

This machine is capable of travelling over a considerable span of an obstruction such like a ditch, cavity or bump without stepping in or crawling over it. The electrical cables and communication cables connected to hydraulic pumps, motors and sensors of legs are controlled by the driver from his control panel at the front of carriage.

Walking machine

In order to turn the direction the rear leg of the carriage is accompanied with hydraulic arms connected laterally which is slidable slightly through it's rear beam.

By adjusting the height as desired according to ground condition this vehicle can travel on any steep path without changing its horizontal position.
