Methods to use a logic module 133 to provide control signals to motor control circuits are well known and documented in the electrical arts.

The following definitions were used in this disclosure:

Battery: As used in this disclosure, a battery is a container consisting of one or more cells, in which chemical energy is converted into electricity and used as a source of power.

Bearing: As used in this disclosure, a bearing is a mechanical device that: 1) guides and limits the motion of a moving component relative to a fixed component; and, 2) reduces the friction between the moving component and the fixed component. The use of bearings is well known and documented in the mechanical arts.

Conical Plate: As used in this disclosure, a conical plate is a structure that is formed from a plurality of plates. Each plate selected from the plurality of plates is differentiated from plates remaining in the plurality of plates by the span of the diameter of the plate of the selected plate compared to the span of the corresponding diameter of the remaining plates in the plurality of plates. The plurality of plates are stacked upon each other such that: 1) the centers of each of the plurality of plates are aligned such these centers form a line that is perpendicular to the supporting surface upon which the plurality of plates are stacked; 2) the plurality of plates are stacked in a decreasing order based of the span of the diameter of the plate; 3) the plurality of plates are stacked such that the plate with the maximum span of the diameter of the plate is proximal to the supporting surface; and, 4) the plurality of plates are stacked such that the plate with the minimum span of the diameter of the plate is distal from the supporting surface. A conical plate formed from a plurality of circular disks is commonly seen and often referred to as a Tower of Hanoi.

Continuous track: As used in this disclosure, the term continuous track refers to a continuous loop of treads that are used to provide traction a vehicle. The treads are attached to form the continuous loop using a pivot. The use of the pivot allows the plane formed by a first tread to rotate relative to the plane formed by an adjacent tread as the two treads are rotated around the continuous loop. The continuous track is generally wrapped around two or more wheels which are used to guide the continuous track through the continuous loop. For a motorized vehicle, the two or more wheels are mechanically rotated such that the rotation of the two or more wheels rotates the continuous track and propel the motorized vehicle. The main advantages of a continuous track relative to wheels are: 1) the continuous track will provide better traction; and, 2) the greater surface area of the continuous track relative to the wheels creates a load path the exerts less pressure on the supporting surface relative to wheels. Regularly seen vehicles that commonly use (a pair of) continuous track include, but are not limited to, military vehicles, heavy construction equipment, and mobile robotic devices. The continuous track is commonly referred to as a tank tread.

Control System: As used in this disclosure, a control system is a first device or system that manages and regulates the behavior or operation of a second device or system.

Electric Motor: In this disclosure, an electric motor is a machine that converts electric energy into rotational mechanical energy.

Horizontal: As used in this disclosure, horizontal is a directional term that refers to a direction that is either: 1) parallel to the horizon; 2) perpendicular to the local force of gravity, or, 3) parallel to a supporting surface. In cases where the appropriate definition or definitions are not obvious, the second option should be used in interpreting the specification. Unless specifically noted in this disclosure, the horizontal direction is always perpendicular to the vertical direction.

Housing: As used in this disclosure, a housing is a rigid casing that encloses and protects one or more devices.

Hitch: As used in this disclosure, a hitch is a fastening apparatus that attaches an unpowered vehicle to a motorized vehicle such that the motorized vehicle can tow the unmotorized vehicle.

Inferior: As used in this disclosure, the term inferior refers to a directional reference that is parallel to and in the same direction as the force of gravity.

Load Path: As used in this disclosure, a load path refers to a chain of one or more structures that transfers a load generated by a raised structure or object to a foundation or the earth.

Logic Module: As used in this disclosure, a logic module is a readily and commercially available electrical device that accepts digital and analog inputs, processes the digital and analog inputs according to previously specified logical processes and provides the results of these previously specified logical processes as digital or analog outputs.

Outer Dimension: As used in this disclosure, the term outer dimension describes the span from a first exterior or outer surface of a tube or container to a second exterior or outer surface of a tube or container. The term is used in much the same way that a plumber would refer to the outer diameter of a pipe.

Pitch: As used in this disclosure, the term pitch refers to the rotation or oscillation of a vehicle around the lateral axis of a vehicle. When a vehicle is resting in a normal position on a level surface, the lateral axis is defined as the axis that: 1) is perpendicular to the roll axis; and, 2) is parallel to the level surface. In this definition, the level surface is strictly a reference in the sense that the definition of the lateral axis remains unchanged should the surface change. The lateral axis is also commonly referred to as the pitch axis. More colloquially, pitch would be referred to a moving the nose of the vehicle up or down.

Rectangular Block: As used in this disclosure, a rectangular block refers to a three dimensional structure comprising six rectangular surfaces formed at right angles. Within this disclosure, a rectangular block may further comprise rounded edges and corners.

Roll: As used in this disclosure, the term roll refers to a rotation or oscillation of a vehicle around the axis of the vehicle that is defined by the nominal direction of travel of the vehicle. This described axis is commonly referred to as the roll axis or the longitudinal axis. By nominal direction of travel of the vehicle is meant the anticipated forward or backward direction of a vehicle or, more colloquially, the direction the front of the vehicle is going. An example of a difference between the nominal direction of travel and actual direction of travel occurs with aircraft in a heavy cross wind. In this situation, the actual direction of travel of the aircraft will not align with the longitudinal axis.

Slewing Bearing: As used in this disclosure, a slewing bearing is a device that is used to rotate an object on a horizontal surface. Slewing bearings are often called turntable bearings or a lazy Susan bearing.

Superior: As used in this disclosure, the term superior refers to a directional reference that is parallel to and in the opposite direction of the force of gravity.

Supporting Surface: As used in this disclosure, a supporting surface is a horizontal surface upon which an object is placed. Within this disclosure, it is assumed that the object is placed on the supporting surface in an orientation that is appropriate for the normal or anticipated use of the object.

Tow: As used in this disclosure, the term tow is used as a verb that refers to moving an object by pulling on the object with the assistance of an apparatus or device.

Trailer: As used in this disclosure, a trailer is an unpowered vehicle that is towed by a powered vehicle.

Transceiver: As used in this disclosure, a transceiver is a device that is used to transmit and receive radio signals.

Vehicle: As used in this disclosure, a vehicle is a device that is used for transporting passengers, goods, or equipment. The term motorized vehicle refers to a vehicle can move under power provided by an electric motor or an internal combustion engine.

Vertical: As used in this disclosure, vertical refers to a direction that is either: 1) perpendicular to the horizontal direction; 2) parallel to the local force of gravity; or, 3) when referring to an individual object the direction from the designated top of the individual object to the designated bottom of the individual object. In cases where the appropriate definition or definitions are not obvious, the second option should be used in interpreting the specification. Unless specifically noted in this disclosure, the vertical direction is always perpendicular to the horizontal direction.

Yaw: As used in this disclosure, the term yaw refers to the rotation or oscillation of a vehicle around the perpendicular axis of a vehicle. The perpendicular axis is defined as the axis that: 1) is perpendicular to the roll axis; and, 2) perpendicular to the pitch axis. The perpendicular axis is also commonly referred to as the yaw axis or the spin axis. More colloquially, yaw would be referred to as a spin.

With respect to the above description, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationship for the various components of the invention described above and in FIGS. 1 through 5 include variations in size, materials, shape, form, function, and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the invention.

It shall be noted that those skilled in the art will readily recognize numerous adaptations and modifications which can be made to the various embodiments of the present invention which will result in an improved invention, yet all of which will fall within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined in the following claims. Accordingly, the invention is to be limited only by the scope of the following claims and their equivalents.
