ABSTRACT
TITLE OF PROJECT: Switchable steering system
CATEGORY PREFERENCE: Transportation
OBJECTIVE:
The objective is to design a steering system which can be
switched to Four-wheel steering or Two-wheel steering as required
for a particular terrain or track with the help of a simple
mechanical linkage.
IMPLEMENTATION METHODOLOGY: (Tools, Techniques, Methods involved) :
A four wheel steering system which is suitable for both high and low speeds is to be designed
which can also be switched to two-wheel steering.. There will be two racks: front rack and the
rear rack . The front rack and pinion system will be operated by the steering wheel . The rear
rack will be connected to the front system through center shaft . This center shaft will have a
mesh of gears at its end out of which one will drive the rack. The type of steering desired can be
achieved by altering the gear which engages with the rear rack.
APPLICATION:
Four-wheel steering has many benefits, starting with improved
manoeuvrability, sharp dynamic response, and a great steering
precision which increases the driveability and safety. At low
speeds, this system provides a smaller turning circle, easy
manoeuvring; and reduced steering wheel input. At high speed this
system enhances safe cornering speed precision and stability. The
four-wheel steering system can also be disengaged to make it twowheel steering for increased endurance.

JUSTIFY CHOICE OF CATEGORY:


The concept of switch able steering system is applicable to transport
vehicles and can be very useful in transportation industry. It can be very
useful in making the steering of the vehicles more comfortable and also
increase their safety level . Hence the choice of category Transportation
