Mechanism for steering a 4-wheel trailer with small turning radius 4

Combination of slider-crank mechanisms and gear-rack drives allows four wheels turn synchonically. Bar dimenssions are selected in such a way that the wheel turning centers are nearly concurrent.

Advantage: The quadrilateral created by contact points of four wheel with the ground (base area) almost is unchanged when turning.
