Active Steering of Long Combination Vehicles
Work aimed at exploring the benefits gained by adding steering to long combination vehicles.
By steering all axles of an articulated vehicle a number of benefits can be achieved, including swept path reduction, tyre wear improvement and reduced rearward amplification during high-speed transients. Excellent progress has been made using simulations and testing on an experimental articulated vehicle built by the researchers with members of the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium. Current work includes investigating benefits of long combination vehicles.
