Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SWAY CONTROL OF TRACTOR-TRAILERS USING AN ACTIVE HITCH
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE COMMANDE DE BALANCEMENT DE SEMI-REMORQUES À L'AIDE D'UN ATTELAGE ACTIF
Abstract:
(EN) An active hitch for controlling sway between a tractor-trailer including an attachment mechanism and a controller. The controller receives signals associated with driving characteristics or driving conditions and then determines if the active hitch needs to be moved in order to control sway. If needed, the active hitch is urged to move such that the angle between the tractor and trailer can be changed in order to control sway.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un attelage actif pour commander le balancement entre un semi-remorque comprenant un mécanisme de fixation et un dispositif de commande. Le dispositif de commande reçoit des signaux associés à des caractéristiques de conduite ou à des conditions de conduite, puis détermine si l'attelage actif doit être déplacé afin de commander le balancement. Si nécessaire, l'attelage actif est poussé pour se déplacer de telle sorte que l'angle entre le tracteur et la remorque peut être modifié afin de commander le balancement.
