Abstract
Basic fundamentals of wheel or track vehicle interaction research are outlined briefly together with the research carried out in this field in Canada. A review of experience with surface vehicles tested recently in Canada shows that optimum design conditions have yet to be met, and future developments for a Northland vehicle must meet a multiple set of criteria. The recent Quadripartite table exercise for design of an optimum vehicle to be used over representative Northern terrain is cited as an example.
