These wheels transform their shape to match any terrain.

Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T)

DARPA just reinvented the wheel - literally.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are working on a wheel-to-track mechanism that renders combat vehicles capable of conquering any terrain with ease. The wheel turns into a track while the vehicle is still moving.

This research is part of DARPA's GXV-T program to increase the mobility and safety of military vehicles.
