Zero Radius Turn Methodology, Vehicle


This paper aims to bring out an alternative solution for conventional vehicle maneuvering method like two wheel steering system. In modern era, the major characteristics of a vehicle include steering ability and handling have acquired more important. Conventional steering system involves either Ackerman or Davis steering system which has major disadvantage that it can’t take minimum radius turn. Here the main intention is to improve turning ability of the vehicle by zero radius, without wheel wandering problems. The numbers of vehicles in roads are increasing and results problem of traffic congestion and vehicle maneuvering on narrow roads. To overcome this problem Zero radius turn methodology by lift and turn mechanism in vehicles has been proposed.
