Development of Active-Front-Steering System (Differential Gear Type) 2008-01-0500
We have developed a new active-front-steering system which contributes to the vehicle safety improvement. This system includes two motors and differential gear unit in one body. It makes possible to compensate steer angle and control reactive torque simultaneously. This means driver assistance control without interference on driver. This concept has a potential to omit tuning process on each vehicle, and reduce weight and cost. We have proved the effect of driver assistance control by this system.
