The report contains discussion of basic mathematical parameters of cornering a semitrailer with steerable wheels as related to the basic kinematic parameter. Major example given is cornering when tractor moves along a circular trajectory and semitrailer is still on the straightaway with subsequent conjugation. The second article discusses specific theoretical and practical kinematics of steering linkage in terms of cornering angles. A measuring device using electro-mechanical time and course sensors is used in test performed on a forklift truck. Measuring device described and test results given in bar graph and cumulative curve.
