RXT-G ACP BackTracker Steering system
The LongRanger III is equipped with ACPropulsion's
BackTracker steering system.
This system is designed to keep the trailer directly behind
the tow vehicle whether the vehicle is moving forward or backward.
The trailer hitch and ball each hold sensors that
determine the trailer’s angle to the vehicle. The wheels also hold
sensors that determine the trailer’s speed and direction
(forward or reverse). Between these systems a PCB controls the
directional inputs to a servo motor which adjusts the wheel
pitch based on those inputs. There is no software
involved in the system.
