Abstract: The advent to the large booster rocket has made the landing of men and vehicles on the lunar surface a possibility. This paper discusses the analysis and selection of an optimum steering system for the remote control of a mobile surface vehicle. Combinations of three steering configuratiosn and three types of controllers are considered as possible steering systems. The generalized system concept is here developed and an analog-computer simulation described. The results of the analysis and simulation are presented with appropriately derived conclusions.
