Title
(EN) STEERING ARRANGEMENT FOR TILTABLE VEHICLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DIRECTION POUR VÉHICULE INCLINABLE
Abstract
(EN) A front frame is provided with a seat for at least one person and a front wheel mounting for at least one front wheel; and a back frame provided with a rear wheel mounting for at least two back wheels. The front frame is connected via a rotary axis with the back frame, the rotary axis having a component parallel to the longitudinal direction of the vehicle. A drive arrangement engages on at least one of the wheels; a steering arrangement is arranged for rotating at least one front wheel relative to the front frame, over a rotation axis with a vertical component. The rear wheel mounting comprises rotatable mounting members for mounting the rear wheels, the mounting members rotatable over a rotation axis with a vertical component, wherein one or more rear wheel steering actuators drive the mounting members. A tilt actuator controls the tilt position of the front frame relative to the rear frame, which is independent of the steering actuation of the rear wheel steer actuator.
(FR) Dans la présente invention, un cadre avant comporte un siège pour au moins une personne et un bâti de roue avant pour au moins une roue avant ; et un cadre arrière pourvu d'un bâti de roue arrière pour au moins deux roues arrière. Le cadre avant est relié par l’intermédiaire d'un axe rotatif au cadre arrière, l'axe rotatif comportant un composant parallèle à la direction longitudinale du véhicule. Un dispositif d'entraînement vient en prise sur au moins une des roues ; un dispositif de direction est disposé pour faire tourner au moins une roue avant par rapport au cadre avant, sur un axe de rotation avec une composante verticale. Le bâti de roue arrière comprend des éléments de montage rotatifs pour le montage des roues arrière, les éléments de montage pouvant tourner sur un axe de rotation avec une composante verticale, un ou plusieurs actionneurs de roue arrière entraînant les éléments de montage. Un actionneur d'inclinaison commande la position d'inclinaison du cadre avant par rapport au cadre arrière, lequel est indépendant de l'actionnement de direction de l'actionneur de direction de roue arrière.
