Paper Abstract

The idea of this paper is to design a Magnetorheological (MR) fluid based damper for steer-by-wire systems to provide sensory feedback to the driver. The advantages of using MR fluids in haptic devices stem from the increase in transparency gained from the lightweight semiactive system and controller implementation. The performance of MR fluid based steer-by wire system depends on MR fluid model and specifications, MR damper geometry, and the control algorithm. All of these factors are addressed in this study. The experimental results show the improvements in steer-by-wire by adding force feedback to the system.
