The paper presents an original solution to the problem of correct steering. It is obtained by modifying the well-known six-bar linkage with the addition of a differential mechanism between the steering wheel and the original linkage. The differential mechanism, coupled to a higher pair, resolves the single input coming from the steering wheel into two outputs satisfying the condition of correct steering. Forces transmitted by the higher pair are evaluated through a static analysis. A numerical simulation, with practical criteria for the selection of relevant design variables, concludes the paper.

Abstract

The paper presents an original solution to the problem of correct steering. It is obtained by modifying the well-known six-bar linkage with the addition of a differential mechanism between the steering wheel and the original linkage. The differential mechanism, coupled to a higher pair, resolves the single input coming from the steering wheel into two outputs satisfying the condition of correct steering. Forces transmitted by the higher pair are evaluated through a static analysis. A numerical simulation, with practical criteria for the selection of relevant design variables, concludes the paper.
