ABSTRACT
The article presents the methodology and results of the studies of forces in the steering rods in real traffic situations. The particular attention was paid to the drive through the roadside, which is lowered in relation to the roadway. Such a situation is dangerous due to the road safety, because when returning from the roadside to the roadway, the torque of the steering wheel, regulated by the power steering, is so small that it helps the driver to perform too great turn of the steering wheel, so that the car can be found on the lane of the opposite direction or it can leave the roadway. The aim of this paper was to identify the distribution of forces in the rods and to propose suitable reversing of the power steering system with the use of these forces.
