Abstract: Mobility of the LGP-30 wheeled vehicle is simulated by using the kinematics model developed in this paper based on the vehicle's tyre-terrain interaction model. The kinematics model on slippage represents that slippage is a major function of vehicle sinkage. The simulation results show that the LGP-30 wheeled vehicle would not be able to traverse on Sepang's peat terrain as the vehicle sinkage is significantly higher than surface mat thickness and vehicle ground clearance as well.
