Prototype design of an integrated angle determination between towing vehicle and trailer

  • The aim of this Project is to create a device which holds a Hall sensor to measure the Hitch angle between the Bicycle and its trailer. The device should be able to rotate the sensors along the z-axis (Hitch). Also, when the bicycle is on an inclined plane (tilted along the y-axis), the device should be able to maintain the position of the sensor and still rotate along the z-axis. The device would constitute a main body which splits in two parts. The top part holds the position marker of the sensor, and the bottom parts holds the active side of the sensor. The active side of the sensor is placed on a cylindrical plate which is connected to a bottom plate. These two plates are placed on two Tapered Roller bearings for easy rota-tion. In one concept, a steel wire is wired through the bottom plate of the sensor, round a pulley system and finally attached to a spring, whereby the spring is secured on a fixed stand. The spring is used to hold the sensors in place when the bicycle turns left or right or inclined uphill or downhill. The reason is to keep the active part of the sensor stationary and the position marker of the sensor rotating. In another concept, a steel wire is wired through the bottom plate of the sensor and directly attached to a spring holder system, whereby this is attached to the bar of the ball and socket joint of the trailer. The reason is to keep the active part of the sensor stationary and the position marker of the sensor rotating. In the final concept, a steel wire is wired through the bottom plate of the sensor and at-tached to the ends of two separate springs, whereby this is attached to the bar of the ball and socket joint of the trailer. The reason is to keep the active part of the sensor stationary and the position marker of the sensor rotating.
