Vehicle control systems that can be used, for example, to configure a vehicle (e.g., a lawn tractor or riding lawn mower) to make low- to substantially zero-radius turns. Some of the present vehicle control systems utilize at least one steered wheel position sensor to generate a signal that indicates the actual position of the steerable structure (e.g., wheel) to which the sensor is coupled, rather than a projected or anticipated position of that steerable structure. Vehicles that include such control systems.
1. A control system for a vehicle capable of making a small radius turn that has steerable wheels and drivable wheels, the control system comprising: a steered wheel position sensor coupled to one of the steerable wheels and configured to generate a signal corresponding to the actual position of such steerable wheel, regardless of a commanded position of such steerable wheel;a speed input sensor configured to generate a signal representative of a commanded speed input; anda control unit coupled to the steered wheel position sensor and the speed input sen...
