Hello everyone.
Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.

"Side-turning" is a strange term, presumably generated by an automated translator. This is a skid-steer or differential steering vehicle, like an Argo (or most tracked vehicles).

I think the trailing arm suspensions make sense with in-wheel motors and skid steering, although in one view there are apparently additional parts across the vehicle which would just be a ground clearance problem. In the close-up these appear to be track rods of some sort, which shouldn't be needed and will be vulnerable to damage.

Are those skinny sticks going to each wheel some form of drive shafts ? Seems like an easy element to damage.

These are just the safety rods in this Green Scout 2.0 all-terrain vehicle. They serve as insurance for the suspension arms. On the Green Scout 3.0 all-terrain vehicle, these safety rods will no longer be available.
