	%X This paper addresses issues of integral steering of
vehicles with two steering axles, where the rear wheels are pivoted in
the direction of the front wheels, but also in the opposite direction.
The steering box of the rear axle is presented with simple linkages
(single contour) that correlate the pivoting of the rear wheels
according to the direction of the front wheels, respectively to the
rotation angle of the steering wheel. The functionality of the system
is analyzed – the extent to which the requirements of the integral
steering are met by the considered/proposed mechanisms. The paper
highlights the quality of the single contour linkages, with two driving
elements for meeting these requirements, emphasizing diagrams of
mechanisms with 2 driving elements. Cam variants are analyzed and
proposed for the rear axle steering box. Cam profiles are determined
by various factors.
