This Asia-Pacific Conference of ISTVS will jointly be held with the 39th Annual Meeting of The Japanese Society for Terramechanics. The conference is a good opportunity for researchers, engineers, or students who are interested in terramechanics, to exchange views or ideas on recent development in terrain-vehicle systems.

Main topics of the conference include:

  • Terramechanics, terrain/soil-wheel/tire/track interaction, modeling and characterization
  • Advances in mobility, energy transfer, efficiency, ground vehicle dynamics, safety
  • Land locomotion, off-road and military vehicles, operation snow and ice
  • Agricultural, forestry, construction, and mining equipment and vehicles
  • Mobile robotics for ground applications, planet exploration and other environments
  • Innovative system designs for terrain and road-vehicle applications
  • Application of bionics engineering to terramechanics
