Abstract

This paper investigates a new asymmetric steering concept
within orbital steering units called OSPS, which asymmetry en-
ables new steering features for the operator of the vehicle com-
pared to traditional OSP variants. A traditional orbital steering
unit functions as a proportional valve system with a certain over-
lap, where the operator input to the steering wheel will initiate
the rotation of the wheels with a small dead-band of 2-3 degrees.
The new asymmetric unit functions instead as a proportional
valve system with a certain under-lap, where the operator will
initiate the rotation of the wheels directly related to the steering
wheel rotation instead. The objective with this paper is to evalu-
ate the closed loop performance for the new asymmetric concept,
because the right and left control loop is changed compared to a
tradional OSP unit.
