I was developping the model of a car suspension. After implementing one quarter of the car, I thought it might be cool to combine four "quarter car" models and a simple arm to create a rover equipped with a robotic arm.
The contact dynamics for the wheel is very simple. A spring-damper that is enabled when the wheels touch the ground.
