Discovery and Invention through Computational Mechanical Design

5-SS Steering Mechanism

A scaled prototype was built in order to demonstrate the kinematics of a novel steering linkage design. The design adapts the track, wheelbase, camber angles, and wheel height in order to improve the turning radius, body roll, and straightline stability of the vehicle without incurring any trade-offs.
