Some tasks require accurate movement of loads when the vehicle acceleration transmitted to the load is limited and the load needs to be moved over a rough terrain. This problem may be solved either by improving the quality ofthe wheel suspension (by using a softer suspension), or by using a purely walking mechanism1 . This paper suggests a new approach that combines wheeled and walking mechanisms. Walking algorithms are used for rough terrains, while traditional wheels are used for flat surfaces. Such approach for the wheeled and walking platform may be used for various purposes – from elimination of the consequences of accidents and disasters (transportation of the wounded persons) to exploration of natural resources10
