The patented Hi2Wam™ is an intelligent modular dual wheel drive assembly with a height adjusting suspension sub system. As a cyber-physical system, the Hi2Wam uses five motors, one motor for each wheel assembly, one for steering and two motors for height adjusting. With each Wheel Assembly (WA™) independently driven, holonomic movement capabilities are possible. The active suspension uses an integral load cell providing load and height control, depending on the implementation. The Hi2Wam CPS uses modular construction and implementation, with intelligent local embedded computer control. Installation is a simple bolt up with one electrical connection for power and communications.
The Hi2Wam system includes two wheels, the complete steering system, the load/lift system, all the servo amps, electronics and embedded computer controls, and the rotary electrical connection.
Engineered and Assembled in the USA. We, as an OEM, strive to use American domestic components wherever possible. Details covered in our patent #7789175.
