Abstract

A four wheel steering system also called as Quadra steering system, in which both front wheels and rear wheels can be steered for reducing the turning radius. There are several arrangements available for steer all the wheels. But in the project used rack and pinion (spur gear) arrangement. There are two steering rack mounted at front side and rear side on the frame. Both steering racks spindle having pinion which are connected by the rack. Here the STEERING RACK and RACK are two different things, the steering rack is element use for steer or turning purpose of vehicle. And the rack is use for connecting two steering rack. The rack is mounted in such a way that it should mesh both front and rear steering racks pinion. This causes transfer of motion from front steering rack to rear steering rack. As a result all wheels are steers simultaneously. The project was created on software called as creo- parametric. After modeling of project on creo- parametric it was fabricated.
