Self Propelled Trailer

Self Propelled Trailer

A platform vehicle with a large array of wheels on the bottom. The SPT is used for transporting massive objects such as bridges, oil refining equipment, huge motors, large bridge sections and more. The SPT has a grid of several dozen computer-controlled wheels, all individually controllable and steerable, in order to evenly distribute weight and steer accurately. Each individual wheel can swivel independently from other wheels, to allow the SPT to turn, move sideways, or even spin in place. The SPT allows each wheel to telescope independently of each other, so that the load can be kept flat and evenly distributed while moving over uneven terrain. The SPT is controlled by a worker with a hand held control panel.
