Abstract:

To provide a transporter for transporting a subject to be inspected over an irregular surface.

The transporter 10 includes a support platform for supporting a load, the loaded support platform defining fore-aft and lateral planes and characterized by a load distribution. A plurality of ground contacting elements 13, 14 are coupled to the support platform and thus the transporter 10 is statically stable for inclination in the fore-aft plane. At least one of the plurality of ground contacting elements 13, 14 is driven by a motorized drive arrangement. A sensor modules 15, 16 generate a signal indicating the load distribution of the loaded support platform. Based at least on the load distribution, a controller commands a driving device with a motor.
