Title: VEHICLE STEERING CONTROL DEVICE
Abstract:
A vehicle steering control device comprises: a steering unit which is provided with an input shaft; a steered unit which is provided with an output shaft; a clutch which is adapted for connection and disconnection between the input shaft and the output shaft; and a control unit which controls the steered unit on the basis of an input from the steering unit. The control unit controls the rotation of the output shaft so that the clutch rotates freely when the input shaft rotates. The clutch can be configured so that the clutch rotates freely when the rotational speed of the output shaft is higher than or equal to the rotational speed of the input shaft and so that the clutch is engaged when the rotational speed of the output shaft is lower than the rotational speed of the input shaft.
