The right steering robot for your application

With over 10 years of worldwide operation the VEHICO steering robots enjoy an increasing popularity.

Our customers have always appreciated the fact that they do not have to remove the vehicle's steering wheel.
Our role as technology leader in the field of behind-the-wheel steering robots is even recognised by our competitors, by recently attempting to copy our unique design. However, no copy has come close to the quality, flexibility and smooth operation of our steering robots.

  • Vehicle's own steering wheel does not have to be removed
  • Technology leader in Behind-the-Wheel steering robots
  • Unique short installation time

The design of VEHICO steering robots guarantees that the control units are not confused by the absence of a steering wheel and that airbag deployment is guaranteed. and that airbag deployment remains guaranteed. Also, there are no disturbing superstructures between the steering wheel and driver. Last but not least, we were even able to combine these advantages with an unbeatably short installation time.

Performance classes

The right system for every application

The VEHICO steering robots can precisely and reproducibly set highly dynamic steering movements in any test vehicle. and reproducible. Typical applications are skid tests according to FMVSS 126 or ECE R13-H, automatic driving or rollover tests. or rollover tests. The steering robots of the latest generation are available in three different performance classes for passenger cars and two performance classes for trucks. available.

Performance Features

This is what distinguishes our steering robots

The vehicle's own steering wheel does not need to be replaced or removed.

Longsome modifications are not required, the steering robot is simply mounted to the car's steering wheel. Or to a possibly used measurement steering wheel. A special actuator steering wheel is not required. The driver can drive the equipped vehicle manually at any time.

no safety-critical structures between steering wheel and driver

There are no annoying or even safety-critical structures between the steering wheel and the driver.

quick and easy installation

Is the setup time important to you? Fast mounting to the steering wheel, strut simply with one arm to the windshield. Quick adaptation to different vehicles. We don't know of any other steering robot that can be installed that quick.

steering torque

The newest generation of VEHICO steering robots comes with steering torque measurement.

intuitive script language for easy programming

For many years VEHICO successfully uses an intuitive scripting language with which all possible profiles can be freely programmed by simple commands and associated parameters. Numerous standard profiles are preconfigured. External trigger signals can be considered as well.

record and replay steering maneuvers

You can record manually driven steering maneuvers, save them and replay them later with highest precision.

Steer-by-wire through online mode

The VEHICO steering robots come with the capability to control the desired steering wheel angle online. If you want to program e.g. your own path following or similar and want to generate the desired steering wheel angle by a superior computer, the VEHICO steering robot is able to directly control this value in the online mode.

GPS-based automatic track control

The automatic track control, sometimes also known as path following, is integrated as software option CO.Track in our steering robots. From high precision driving on a straight line to highly dynamical driving up to 1g lateral acceleration is possible with CO.Track.

multiple interfaces

Each of our systems can be equipped with a wide variety of interfaces. The most important are CAN, CAN FD, LAN, RS232, Digital In, Digital Out. If the right interface for your project is not included, please contact us.

Range of Applications

A wide range of possible uses

Due to the enormous flexibility, our steering robots are used in a variety of different applications:

  • DIN ISO 7401: 2003 Frequency Response, Steering Angle Jump, Sinus Wave Test
  • ISO 13674-2:2006 On-Centre Handling Tests
  • NHTSA: J-Turn, Fish-Hook Fixed Time, Fish-Hook Roll Rate Feedback
  • FMVSS 126 / ECE R13-H Electronic Stability Control Systems: Slowly Increasing Steer (SIS), Sine with Dwell  >>>
  • Lane Support Systems: Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA)   >>>
  • Emergency Steering Systems (ESS)
  • ECE R79
  • ADAS Tests  >>>
  • Closing Radius Turn
  • Resonant Steer Maneuver
  • Pulse Steer
  • Embankment Rollover  >>>
  • NCAP AEB City, inter urban and pedestrian testing  >>>
