Ackerman, rack and pinion, and parallel steering
The steering blocks use the steering angle or steering torque to calculate wheel angles that you can input to the suspension blocks. The dynamic block accounts for dynamic effects, including idealized power assist, steering column inertia, and friction. Select Ackerman, rack and pinion, or parallel steering.
