The place, where the value of gravity remain lower than earth's own gravitational coefficient, at that place the existing suspension system fails to fulfil desired results as the amount and mode of shock absorbing changes. To counter anti gravity impact, NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory have jointly developed a suspension system called the rocker-bogie Suspension system. It is basically a suspension arrangement used in mechanical robotic vehicles used specifically for space exploration. The

The proposed suspension system is currently the most favoured design for every space exploration company indulge in the business of space research. The motive of this research initiation is to understand mechanical design and its advantages of Rocker-bogie suspension system in order to find suitability to implement it in conventional loading vehicles to enhance their efficiency and also to cut down the maintenance related expenses of conventional suspension systems.
