The observation of the trajectory locus of any point on the periphery of the powerd wheel is more important to mimimize the repuired energy for the trafficability of the vehicle.
In this paper the locus of any point on the powered wheel periphery was discussed the retically and experimetally. A small electric bulb was atached on the wheel rim, and its motion was observed by taking the picture of that locus during the experiments in the dark room. Those pictures obtained from the experiments were compared with the ones determined theoretically for various slippages. The comparison of those two locuses were quite satisfactory, especially in the range of the slippage from 30% up to 60%. The experimental formulae determined in the previous reports were validated at slippage less than 87.05%.
