Abstract:   (2331 Views)
Kinematic synthesis of a trailing six-member mechanism has been carried out to achieve five precision points of an automotive steering mechanism. The inner wheel can be rotated up to forty five degrees with fair accuracy. Results show that the divergent end behavior of Ackermann Steering Mechanism has been overcome by the present mechanism. The work is similar to earlier work by the present author. But the present mechanism is a trailing mechanism instead of a leading one. This helps to eliminate the spur gears used earlier to bring the mechanism on the rear side of the front axle.
