It is very common, around the house or
the mall, for floors to have minor changes in elevation. An expansion joint, a door jamb or maybe just a strip of molding
between a carpeted and tile floor. A Robot must be able to navigate such surfaces. The original design intent of the tread
system used on the Slightly different Robot was to allow the steering hub end (technically the back) to be able to climb over
such objects better then the more “normal” looking front.
