Inspired by a system called ProGrip, Joe Sardo and Federico Bruni have come up with Bimodal concept car. P.G.S. (ProGrip System), mounted at the front frame (also applicable to the rear) is composed of a small central wheel with steering fork through electric motor. In order to increase the grip, it is equipped with an innovative thermo fender. The operating logic is controlled by a control unit and a sensor that does steer the small wheel in synchronization with the turning radius of the front wheels.
P.G.S. inspired by the undercarriage of a plane, opens with electro-hydraulic jacks (when the car is moving in a straight line) through a button in the cockpit, and / or through rain sensors and infrared thermometer sensing temperature asphalt road. This system allows an ‘excellent cornering stability, thanks to adherence vehicle mechanics flowing “like on rails” no under-steer and no over-steer.
