Title
(EN) AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE HAVING INDEPENDENT STEERING
(FR) VÉHICULE AUTONOME À DIRECTION INDÉPENDANTE
Abstract
(EN)
A terminal tractor includes four independently steerable wheels, each with their own dedicated drive motor and each with their own dedicated steering device. The terminal tractor includes a controller operable to provide input commands to the drive motors and to the steering devices to operate the terminal tractor. The terminal tractor also includes a fifth wheel coupling which includes a lifting mechanism capable of raising and lowering the fifth wheel coupling in a single vertical direction.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un tracteur portuaire, comprenant quatre roues orientables indépendamment, chacune avec son propre moteur d'entraînement dédié et chacune avec son propre dispositif de direction dédié. Le tracteur portuaire comprend un dispositif de commande actionnable pour fournir des commandes d'entrée aux moteurs d'entraînement et aux dispositifs de direction pour actionner le tracteur portuaire. Le tracteur portuaire comprend également un accouplement de sellette d'attelage qui comprend un mécanisme de levage capable d'élever et d'abaisser l'accouplement de sellette d'attelage dans une seule direction verticale.
