    Motion Platform using Car Hydraulic Steering System

    I wonder if anybody can help me in locating any information on a motion platform that was designed using a Car Hydraulic Steering System!

    I am trying to gather as much information as possible to to try and demonsrtate to young potential engineers and science students that some extraordinary and innovative ideas can be and are being implemented using off the shelf components or articacts recovered from discarded technology.

    This is an effort to get youngsters to "think outside the box"!

    I would very much appreciate any help in finding this information.

    I should like to thank TronicGR for the extraordinary efforts and help he has given me to date in this and other matters.

    Regards,

    Bill.
