The Final Drive and steering system is the first of its type design. It was engineered as a heavy duty drive unit to apply power to the driven wheels through the existing drive line, independent of the traditional engine transmission combination.
Chassis Remote, Inc. was established in 1994 to develop, manufacture and market a remote drive and steering system for vocational truck applications. A U.S. patent was applied for in 1998 and a full patent was granted in 2000.
Combined with the Kelly’s Directional, Inc. integrated joy stick or full radio remote control system, a single operator can precisely control all truck steering, braking, and forward and reverse drive as well as control all vocational functions of the truck from outside the cab.
