The analysis of ways of movement of planet rovers at the lowered gravitation is presented. The concept of relocation of the cosmonaut, transportation of small-sized cargoes, towing of vehicles of the limited weight is developed. The mathematical model oj movement of the vehicle is developed and modes of movement of a planet rover are analyzed. Power advantages of spring movement for a certain range of level of gravitation and a vehicle design are shown.
