Hi for a project I am making an electric off road go kart, and the steering is going to consist of tie rods as that seems the most simplest. However it does require a decent amount of force to move the wheel, and I was wondering how feasible it would be to use a servo motor to assist a little bit, would this be possible?
I’ve never seen it done like this before and I was wondering what the draw backs would be, i know it would be too dangerous to do it fly by wire, so assistance is probably best. I have some experience with motors and servos having made an RC controlled car. but this is a a much bigger scale and I’m lost how I would go about it.
An idea I have is, connected to the steering column would be a pot, which would control the servo, giving the steering a little bit more force.
