Kinematic Synthesis of a Modified Ackermann Steering Mechanism for Automobiles 2007-01-3636

This is a proposed alternative to the Ackermann Steering Mechanism. Synthesis of a six member mechanism taking seven precision points is performed for an automotive steering mechanism. The maximum rotation of inner wheel is taken as 65 degree to attain still less turning radius. The mechanism has been compared with those achieved by Ackerman Steering Mechanism (ASM), Fahey Eight Member Mechanism (FEMM) and Pramanik Six Member Mechanism (PSMM). The suggested mechanism gives fairly the accurate result that falls above the ASM mechanism. The mechanism gives better end response leading to shorter turning radius.
