Title
(EN) VEHICLE DRIVE CONTROL SYSTEMS AND THE RELATED VEHICLES
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE COMMANDE D'ENTRAÎNEMENT DE VÉHICULE ET VÉHICULES ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN)
Vehicle control systems that can be used, for example, to configure a vehicle (e.g., a lawn tractor or riding lawn mower) to make low- to substantially zero-radius turns. Some of the present vehicle control systems utilize at least one steered wheel position sensor to generate a signal that indicates the actual position of the steerable structure (e.g., wheel) to which the sensor is coupled, rather than a projected or anticipated position of that steerable structure. Vehicles that include such control systems.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes de commande de véhicule pouvant être utilisés, par exemple, pour configurer un véhicule (p. ex. un tracteur à tondeuse ou une tondeuse à siège) afin que celui-ci fasse des virages dont le rayon de braquage est faible à sensiblement nul. Certains des systèmes de commande de véhicule de l'invention utilisent au moins un capteur de position de roue directrice, qui produit un signal indiquant la position réelle de la structure pouvant être dirigée (p. ex. roue) à laquelle le capteur est couplé, plutôt qu'une position projetée ou anticipée de ladite structure. L'invention concerne aussi des véhicules comprenant de tels systèmes de commande.
