Abstract：In this paper,a posture analysis method for Autonomous Land Vehicle on uneven terrain is proposed.Thetracked vehicle is replaced with a regular rectangular plane for simplicity.The mathematical description ofthe vehicle posture is given and a step-by-step searching algorithm is presented.Simulation examples verifythe effectiveness of the algorithm.
