Development of New Tilt-Wheel Steering Column with “Memory” 830997

Unlike conventional tilt-wheel devices, the newly developed ones have a “memory mechanism” which allows steering wheels to return to pre-set tilt-angle positions selected by individual drivers using only a single lever.
This paper describes the design of such devices and outlines the engineering and test results regarding certain problems, such as the vibration of the systems and influences on the original energy-absorbing characteristics caused by weight addition and increased complexity of the wheel columns.
