Optimization of Steering System for Four Wheel Vehicle
In present the car steering system used by us is 2 wheel steering system and in standard 2 wheel steering the rear wheel set is idle and not to play a role in steering. While in 4 wheel steering system the rear and front both wheels are active and can guide in steering. Here we using MARUTI-800 car as a reference model.
We have developed a optimized 4 wheel steering system for implementation of mechanism that can give the work in changing in-phase and counter-phase steering of rear wheels depending upon the condition of turning and lane changing with respect to front wheels, thus enhancing the maneuverability of a sedan in accordance with its speed.
