Rear to Front Steer Algorithm for Four Wheel Steer Full Size Trucks - Analytical Assessment 2005-01-0405

The four wheel steer system better known as the Quadra Steer system (QS4) is a system that provides steering control of the rear wheel of long based pickups and large sport utilities. Analysis was utilized to develop Rear/Front (R/F) steering algorithm with the vehicle in it's normal mode which is characterized as vehicle at curb + 2 passengers or GVW/RGAWR on dry surface. Analysis utilized BZ3 control response simulation model to conduct this study. This dynamic model was used to evaluate key vehicle handling parameters to validate and optimize the algorithm.
