A detour on steering mechanism

a study of turning angles
We wanted to have a unique steering system so we explored having levers on the sides. After several quick prototypes to test out the joints and a visual representation of how it would work, we realised that the lever method of steering may not be as feasible as a simple steering wheel.

The problem we faced with having a lever steering system is that we would require 2 axial each rotating in the x and y plane respectively. To solve this problem, we finally decided on using ropes for a simpler yet effective steering system.
