1237 results about "Power steering" patented technology

In motor vehicles, a power steering system helps drivers steer the vehicle by augmenting steering effort needed to turn the steering wheel, making it easier for the driver to turn. Hydraulic or electric actuators add controlled energy to the steering mechanism, so the driver can provide less effort to turn the steered wheels when driving at typical speeds, and reduce considerably the physical effort necessary to turn the wheels when a vehicle is stopped or moving slowly. Power steering can also be engineered to provide some artificial feedback of forces acting on the steered wheels.

Power bogie with independent wheels for 100 percent low-floor light rail vehicles

InactiveCN101979266AAchieving 100% low floor requirementsReasonable structureBogiesBogieMotor drive
The invention discloses a power bogie with independent wheels for 100 percent low-floor light rail vehicles. The power bogie with the independent wheels comprises a framework, an axle mechanism, primary springs, secondary springs, secondary vertical and transverse dampers, a double-pull rod traction mechanism, the longitudinal driving mechanism of an elastically frame-suspended motor and a hydraulic brake unit, wherein the side beams of the framework are cantilevers which protrude outward; two short shafts are supported by bearing units and connected with elastic wheels respectively; an axle consists of the two short shafts; two wheels on the same side of the bogie are fixed on a motor-driven shaft; a motor is coupled with two gear boxes; a brake system is integrated with a traction motor; the four secondary vertical dampers are arranged at the four corners of the framework; the secondary transverse dampers are arranged at the two ends of the framework; and a parallel double-pull rod traction system is arranged on the inner side of the framework. The requirement of 100 percent low floor on vehicle bodies is really realized by the high-strength welded framework, the independent wheel axle mechanism, the primary springs and the secondary springs which are rationally structured, the optimal secondary vertical and transverse dampers, the parallel double-pull rod traction device with internal traction, the longitudinal drive of the elastically frame-suspended motor, and the hydraulic brake unit which is integrated with the traction motor.

Electric power steering assembly

This invention relates to an improved structure for a rack drive assembly adapted for use in a vehicle electric power steering assembly. The electric power steering assembly includes a steering member (32), a ball nut assembly (70), a bearing assembly (80) and an electric motor (60). The steering member (32) is disposed in a rack housing (30) and includes a rack portion (34) operatively connected to a vehicle steering wheel (12) and a screw portion (40) having an external thread convolution (42). The ball nut assembly (70) is operatively connected to the screw portion (40) of the rack portion (34) of the steering member (32) for effecting axial movement of the steering member (32) upon rotation of the vehicle steering wheel (12). The ball nut assembly (70) includes a rotor shaft (76) and a ball nut (72) fixed to the shaft (76) for rotation therewith. The ball nut (72) includes an outer surface (96) and the rotor shaft (76) includes an inner surface (114). The bearing assembly (80) is carried by the rotor shaft (76) for rotatably supporting the ball nut assembly (70) relative to the steering member (32). The electric motor (60) is operatively coupled to the rotor shaft (76) via a pulley assembly (82). The power steering assembly further includes an insulator (74) disposed between at least a portion of the outer surface (96) of the ball nut (72) and the inner surface (114) of the rotor shaft (76). The insulator (74) isolates the ball nut (72) from at least one of the pulley assembly (82) and the bearing assembly (80) to thereby reduce the noise in the ball nut assembly (70).

An electrohydraulic power steering system controlled based on vehicle speed and load signals

The invention discloses an electro-hydraulic power steering system for an engineering mechanical vehicle based on vehicle speed and load signal control. A steering hydraulic pump of the electro-hydraulic power steering system is connected with a rotary valve and is connected between an oil storage device and a direct current motor; the rotary valve is connected with a power-assisted steering oil cylinder; the direct current is connected with a steering control unit through a driving circuit; the steering assisted cylinder is connected with a steering gear plumbing arm; the other end of the steering gear plumbing arm is connected to a steering knuckle arm through a steering straight pull rod; the steering knuckle arm is connected with wheels; a wheel rotary angle sensor, a vehicle speed sensor, a steering shaft load sensor, a steering wheel rotary angle sensor and a torque sensor are respectively connected with a steering control unit; both the vehicle speed and the load are consideredin the whole control system; the steering control unit is controlled by closed loop feedback; the defects that a steering force is insufficient or over great caused by incomplete signal acquisition is prevented; the precision of steering control is improved; and the aim of saving energy is achieved.
