Tracked Vehicle Model with Simscape™

Copyright 2023 The MathWorks, Inc.

This repository contains models and code to help engineers model and simulate tracked vehicles. A set of examples shows how to assemble track segments into a chain that will mesh with the sprocket, rollers, and idler in the vehicle undercarriage. Models of vehicles traveling on multiple wheels are also provided.

  • Fully parameterized models of tracked and multi-axle vehicles
  • Detailed and abstract variants for testing different systems
  • Modular library elements enable assembly of parameterized tracks.
  • Customizable contact force definition enable tracked vehicle models tailored to simulation task.
  • MATLAB enables automation of modeling, simulation, and post-processing tasks.
  • Measure mechanical loads on rollers and other components.

Open the project file Tracked_Vehicle_Simscape.prj to get started.
