Abstract
This report investigates the nature of the externally applied forces on a mobile robot traversing natural terrain. A set of relative metrics is derived which are useful in the design of a powertrain controller for such a robot. These metrics are applied to a specific example case, the NavLab II, operating in rolling offroad terrain.
