This paper presents a new design of hybrid locomotion system for mobile robots. It consist the combination of wheel and track type motion system resulting as a hybrid mechanism that includes a robot flexible and versatile interchangeable locomotion. This robot has a switchover module (Track Tensioner unit) which results the loading and unloading of track mechanism. Three wheeled locomotion mechanism help the robot to move on flat surface or path platform with high velocity and high manoeuvrability. The track system is designed for rough and unstructured path. This hybrid mobile robot will be able to work in all type of terrains.
