Abstract


Steering system is used to steer the vehicle according to need. In order to design a steering system it is important to recognise and compensate the forces due to tracks. Steering system of an ATV needs to be efficient as far as the parameters like rigidity, weight, spaces are concerned. As we are designing a steering system of ATV we need to consider a rough terrain. All the forces and torques encounter during the run are considered in order to design the mechanisms which will sustain these rough terrains. As the vehicle needs to be frequently steer in any direction so it is necessary that the mechanism should be responsive and also sustain the fatigue loads due to terrain. Also the steering wheel is designed with consideration on steering force. All the findings and values of the steering report is given in this paper.
