Steering robot

Anthony Best Dynamics’ SR60 Torus model is designed to decrease test setup time, aid vehicle operation, and enhance the safety of vehicle handling tests. The SR60 Torus steering robot differs from conventional steering robots by combining a large diameter hollow center with the ability to clamp the unit to an existing steering wheel, keeping the steering wheel airbag in place. This design avoids the need to remove the original steering wheel or disable the steering wheel airbag, reducing setup time. Safety is increased as the airbag can securely deploy through the center of the wheel without the robot motor becoming detached from the steering wheel. The Torus design also eliminates the problem of sensor deactivation that occurs when the standard steering wheel is removed from some vehicles and allows the driver to have access to the steering wheel mounted controls.
