ENGINEERING PROJECT PREPARATIONJoystick Controlled Steering Mechanism VehicleExecutive SummaryThe purpose of this paper is to analyze joystick controlled steering mechanism vehicle. Thevehicle is utilized of precise steering system framework which allows to control properly. Motoris such a device which is used to convert of electrical energy into the mechanical energy such asrotation of shaft at the output level. A stepper motor is used to convert of electrical signals intoimpulses into rotational angle. The speed of motor is dependent on the frequency of the impulse.Higher value of the speed of rotation is resulted into lower torque of the stepper motor. The valueis associated with assessment of the current intensity. Modification into the wheel chair for thedisabled persons is one of the best ways to reduce effort to operate the wheel chair. The mainpurpose is to reduce the effort of the steering so that handicapped persons can easily drive theirwheel chair.1.IntroductionIn this particular paper, a robotic vehicle with a steering mechanism is being proposed. Thevehicles are used of smart steering system which permits to steer with effortlessness. The steeringmechanism builds smart use of motors to attain the movement of vehicle into further backwardand rotating left or right. The steering system utilizes of joystick to control the movement ofvehicle by means of RF transmission (Saha et al. 2015). The main focus of this project is tolessen effort of driving for the handicapped person.The project study is based on analyzing a steering mechanism for the disabled people those arefacing problems while driving cars. Literature part reviews the work that has already carried outby other researchers. The research is based on identified questions and objectives to meet withstudy requirements. Theoretical approaches are also analyzed used for collect information for thisstudy. Experimental set up is done and their results and outcome are analyzed to meet projectaims. Proper planning is done to deliver work in 8 weeks.2.State-of-the-art/Literature ReviewZheng, Hu and Yang (2016) described that there are people those are not do their day-to-dayactivities due to disability, therefore they are used of wheelchair that is automated and requiredless time. It is done by providing joystick to them which is displaced by the user towards thedirection they want to go. When the steering motion of wheel is being replaced by joystick, thenit becomes easily and effortless to drive (Bowman et al. 2015). The steering wheel is beingreplaced by assembly of the joystick, electric motor as well as gear box. It provides signal tocontrol unit that is forwarded to the motor. The torque of the motor is being magnified by gearbox and its output is being interconnected with the steering column. Rosenberg (2017) stated thatwhen the user wants to move from one place to another, then he pointed to the location wherethey desire to move and the wheel chair positions towards the location automatically. Riefe andSchulz (2017) argued that the joystick manages rate of change of the steering angle in its place ofstraightforwardly change the angle of steering. By making a displacement of the joystick at a
