(FR) ENSEMBLE DIRECTION PASSIVE DESTINE A UN VEHICULE GUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A passive steering assembly (37) for a guided vehicle (12) movable along a guideway (14) includes a vehicle including at least one axle structure (200); a pivot joint (202, 204) at each end of the axle structure; a wheel mounting (210, 212) pivotably engaged with each pivot joint; a hub (214, 216) for rotatably mounting a wheel (226, 228) to each wheel mounting; a wheel connected to each hub for moving the vehicle; and a lateral guide device for controlling the lateral position of the axle structure for steering the wheels to follow the path of the guideway and to a passive steering system including a plurality of such assemblies.
(FR) Cet ensemble direction passive (37), destiné à un véhicule guidé (12) se déplaçant le long d'une glissière (14), comprend un véhicule comportant au moins une structure d'essieu (200), une articulation pivotante (202, 204) au niveau de chaque extrémité de la structure d'essieu, une fixation de roue (210, 212) montée pivotante sur chaque articulation pivotante, un moyeu (214, 216) de montage rotatif d'une roue (226, 228), sur chaque fixation de roue, une roue reliée à chaque moyeu, aux fins de déplacement du véhicule, ainsi qu'un dispositif de guidage latéral, servant à commander la position latérale de la structure d'essieu, aux fins de guidage des roues pour que celles-ci suivent le trajet de la glissière. L'invention concerne également un système de guidage passif comprenant plusieurs de ces ensembles.
