Please do not put "help" as the subject. Think of something a little more descriptive. So you want to have a joystick or something to control the robot??

Looks like a school science project that he'd like us to do for him.

Do you have any specific questions that somebody could help with?  Have you done any research at all?

Get some books, read some mags, search Google.

Please, don't ask us to design something for you.  You're not going to get anything if you keep asking us to do all the work.

Also, this is your second post on the same thing  ???

Please take more care when you are writing your posts! It is almost impossible to tell what you are trying to say! Can you give a more complete description of what you are trying to do?

If it has to go over a rocky surface, I would definitely go with pneumatic rubber tires.  In the U.S., harbor freight is a great source for inexpensive pneumatic wheels.  A more expensive option would be to get replacement lawn tractor wheels at the home center.  Either way, you'll most likely have to machine hubs to attach them to your drive shafts.
