Title (EN) BODY MOUNTED SLIDING STEERING COLUMN WITH OFFSET FEEDBACK ACTUATOR
(FR) COLONNE DE DIRECTION COULISSANTE MONTÉE SUR UN CORPS ET COMPRENANT UN ACTIONNEUR DE RÉTROACTION DÉCALÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A steering apparatus for a vehicle that utilizes steer-by-wire controls and may selectively be operated in an autonomous mode comprises a body mounted sliding steering column. The body mounted sliding steering column includes an arm that slides between a stowed position and a use position on at least one rail attached to a frame of the vehicle. The arm supports a steering column that may also be adjustable between a retracted position and an extended position. The arm also houses a force feedback motor in force-transmitting communication with the steering column. The steering column may be in force communication with a feedback motor, which provides feedback to the driver of the vehicle via a steering wheel attached to the steering column to emulate the forces that would be transmitted to the steering wheel if the steering wheel were mechanically linked to the steerable wheels of the vehicle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de direction pour un véhicule qui utilise des commandes de direction par câble et peut fonctionner sélectivement dans un mode autonome, et qui comprend une colonne de direction coulissante montée sur un corps. La colonne de direction coulissante montée sur le corps comprend un bras qui coulisse entre une position rangée et une position d'utilisation sur au moins un rail fixé à un châssis du véhicule. Le bras supporte une colonne de direction qui peut également être réglable entre une position rétractée et une position étendue. Le bras loge également un moteur de rétroaction de force en communication de transmission de force avec la colonne de direction. La colonne de direction peut être en communication de force avec un moteur de rétroaction, qui fournit une rétroaction au conducteur du véhicule par l'intermédiaire d'un volant de direction fixé à la colonne de direction pour émuler les forces qui seraient transmises au volant de direction si le volant de direction était mécaniquement lié aux roues directrices du véhicule.
