Well, this particular invention of Kamen's does not do steps.
But, his prior big wheelchair invention, the Ibot, does, and if
the Daleks had been outfitted with something like that device,

(Then again, the Daleks _did_ manage to perfect stair passage,
at least during the Colin Baker reign, as I recall.
