A 4-wheel vehicle runs over uneven terrain modelled with the Grid Surface block. Tires are represented as cylindrical bodies with a point cloud mesh associated to them. The contact and rolling of tires over the terrain is captured with the spatial force contact block between grid and point cloud respective meshes. One of the wheels is coupled to an electric motor (fed by a battery) that delivers the propulsion power needed.
