what is the math for a turning car???

Recommended Posts

Could someone please tell me what the math is for calculating the rotation point in comparison with the angle of the front car tires. I need to know this in order to make a car turning look realistic. Any help is appreciated

I don''t know for sure, but if the angel is 90° the radius r is the distance between the front and the back axis.
and if it is 0° its infinit, so you should try
r = d/sin(angel)
with d as the distance between the front and rear axis.
the point of around the car then would turn would be the distance r to the left or right of the front tires under the angel of the tires.
try it and check if t looks realistic.
as I know my friend math and the close relation of uncle angel and grand ma circle I belive it could be right.
