Interesting suspension for an outdoor robot:

Looks like a simplified mars-rover type rocker boogie, four-wheel drive 
skid steered.  I'm trying to figure out how the suspension works.

Maybe a differential in the middle for support, like the mars rovers, 
and the pivot arm on the back connected to the two rockers is passive?  
Here's a video:
