NEW WORLD INNOVATIVE TIRE CONCEPT – Airtrax Cobra Truck Moving in All Directions with EASE!

NEW WORLD INNOVATIVE TIRE CONCEPT -- Airtrax Cobra Truck Moving in All Directions with EASE!

As you can see in the video below, the Airtrax Cobra uses one quite unique wheel system which enables it to move sideways and fore-aft.

The company Airtrax makes a wide range of warehouse vehicles which have this wheel system installed. Airtrax describes its special wheel as “omni directional” which means that with this wheel system movement in multiple directions is fully possible. The navigation of the Airtrax Cobra is managed using a joystick instead of the usual steering wheel found on any other vehicle.

We must admit this is very impressive stuff and we are sure that we’ll see more of this kind of technology in controlled as well as remote-controlled vehicles.

    You know, I can see lots of larger applications for this. From construction and landscaping, to search and rescue. It could have use in combat roles with our military, and even would work well on some automobiles.

    While I will admit that these wheels are cool…They are most certainly NOT new. These have been around since 1973. Someone needs to brush up on their definition of “new.”

    Also, “long big man balls” up there needs a damn dictionary as well. I think I lost a significant portion of my IQ points reading that.

    Welcome to the Airtrax Historical Website

    Airtrax is the original designer and developer of the first commercially produced
    Omni-Directional Lift Truck in the world, the ATX-3000.

    Airtrax introduced this amazing vehicle concept in 2000, manufactured it from September 2005 until March of 2006, and marketed it until 2008 when the company ceased all operations. Airtrax prototyped several other types of vehicles including the COBRA line of Aerial Work Platforms, but none of those were ever produced or sold.

    Vehicle Technologies, Inc. resumed production of the ATX-3000 under license in 2010.

    Vehicle Technologies, suspended production of the ATX-3000 in June of 2013

    The SIDEWINDER is no longer produced, and is only available
    in the used Lift Truck Market

    Vehicle Technologies continues to provide replacement parts for the SIDEWINDER as well as producing a wide variety of Omni-Directional vehicles and Mobility Platforms.
