The Australians have come up with a system that allows you to adjust camber and toe on the goAugust 25, 2020
Australian company DOFTEK begins implementing its own caster, camber and toe control system on the go.
The system was named Active Wheel Alignment System and allows the driver to independently optimize the contact patch of the tire with the road. It is reported that the novelty is suitable for vehicles with any suspension arrangement and for any vehicle.
Installing AWAS will allow the driver to change camber, toe, and caster settings on the fly, depending on road conditions. The system adds just four kilograms to the vehicle’s weight and not only saves fuel, but also reduces tire wear and improves handling.
AWAS is a combination of two electromechanical devices, one of which is located on the suspension, and the other on the steering rod, and the system control unit constantly exchanges data with the vehicle’s ECU. The example is a test Audi TT RS, which has three camber / toe settings: Normal, Sport, which changes the camber by −1.5 degrees, and Sport +, which changes these settings by −3 degrees. As a start, the company plans to enter into an agreement with a major OEM for the supply of the AWAS system and installation on luxury, sports and electric cars.
