    Attach the SteeringWheel script to the steering wheel UI object and use its GetClampedValue function to retrieve its input value. Alternatively, you can take a look at SimpleInput (it has a built-in steering wheel): https://github.com/yasirkula/UnitySimpleInput/

    You should store SteeringWheel in a public variable and replace Input.GetAxis("Horizontal") with steeringWheelObject.GetClampedValue() in your script.

    Thanks sir..,
    But,I actually didn't get where to I should store SteeringWheel as a public variable.I have tried "steeringWheelObject.GetClampedValue()" in my script,But I get error for "GetClampedValue()".
    Please Help me.
    Thanks.

    public SteeringWheel steeringWheelObject;
    in your car controller/input script. Then, assign its value from the Inspector.

    hi
    i am trying to move and rotate my car with joystick , now i am i the phase of moving wheels according to joystick but i dont know how can i do that Please help me out.
    here is my code for car rotation and movement


    float moveHorizontal = CrossPlatformInputManager.GetAxis("Horizontal");
    float moveVertical = CrossPlatformInputManager.GetAxis("Vertical");
    Vector3 movement = new Vector3(moveHorizontal, 0.0f, moveVertical);

    transform.Translate(movement * Time.deltaTime * carSpeed, Space.World);
    transform.LookAt(transform.position + movement);

    There are three possible ways, actually:

    1) Add
    UnityStandardAssets.CrossPlatformInput.CrossPlatformInputManager.SetAxis("Horizontal", GetClampedValue());
    to the Update function of the SteeringWheel script (not tested, I haven't used CrossPlatformInput myself)
    2) Check out SimpleInput: https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/tools/input-management/simple-input-system-113033
    3) Create a "public SteeringWheel steeringWheel;" variable and assign the SteeringWheel object to that variable via Inspector. Then, make the following change to your code:
    float moveHorizontal = steeringWheel.GetClampedValue();

    Olá cara, estou tendo um problema com o volante do meu carro, li todas as mensagens aqui, porém ainda não consigo implementar no meu projeto, tentei de várias maneiras usar o Simple Entrada, sem sucesso. Eu tenho dois scripts o primeiro é seu, porém, não sei como usar o "Get", como getAngle, e GetClampedValue. Meu segundo é mais simples. Os dois scripts funcionam em parte, o primeiro eu posso girar o volante, só as rodas não, o segundo gira com as rodas, mas não consigo girar a cola ao clicar com o mouse. Onde obtive este segundo script, dizia que era apenas uma questão de alterar a entrada "horizontal" por um toque. Não pude, se você pudesse dar uma olhada eu ficaria muito grato!

    [code = CSharp] usando UnityEngine;
    using System.Collections;

    public class Volante: MonoBehaviour {

    public enum Tipos {GirarEmX, GirarEmY, GirarEmZ};
    public GameObject objVolante;
    public Tipos Rotacao = Tipos.GirarEmZ;

    [Range (0.4f, 4.0f)] public float velGiroVolante = 2.0f;
    public bool inverterGiro = false;

    float rotacInicVolantAxis, angulo2Volante;

    void Start () {
    if (objVolante) {
    switch (Rotacao) {
    case Tipos.GirarEmX:
    rotacInicVolantAxis = objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.x;
    pausa;
    case Tipos.GirarEmY:
    rotacInicVolantAxis = objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.y;
    pausa;
    case Tipos.GirarEmZ:
    rotacInicVolantAxis = objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.z;
    pausa;
    }
    }
    }

    void Update () {
    if (objVolante) {
    float velMultplic = 1;
    if (inverterGiro) {
    velMultplic = -1;
    }
    float direcaoFixVolante = Input.GetAxis ("Horizontal") * velMultplic;
    angulo2Volante = Mathf.MoveTowards (angulo2Volante, direcaoFixVolante, velGiroVolante * Time.deltaTime);

    switch (Rotacao) {
    case Tipos.GirarEmX:
    objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles = new Vector3 (rotacInicVolantAxis + (angulo2Volante * 540.0f), objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.y, objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.z); // 540 = 1,5 voltas
    pausa;
    case Tipos.GirarEmY:
    objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles = new Vector3 (objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.x, rotacInicVolantAxis + (angulo2Volante * 540.0f), objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.z);
    pausa;
    case Tipos.GirarEmZ:
    objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles = new Vector3 (objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.x, objVolante.transform.localEulerAngles.y, rotacInicVolantAxis + (angulo2Volante * 540.0f));
    pausa;
    }
    }
    }
    }[/código]

    Então, o que não consigo entender é a parte de atribuir o volante a ele e chamar sua função GetClampedValue ou GetAngle. Eu faço, por exemplo, "SteeringWheel.steerAngle = Mathf.Clamp ((wheelAngle / 5.0f), -40.0f, 40.0f);". ?

    Não não, esse script que mostrei é um segundo que encontrei em um fórum, só mostrei porque é o que funciona melhor aqui. Mas eu estava falando sobre a minha dúvida
    na atribuição do volante e, principalmente, na chamada dessa função GetAngle () ou GetClampedValue (), no seu script desde o início da página. De qualquer forma, vou estudar esse passeio com mais calma, pois não leva meu roteiro de controle do carro. Obrigado!

    Consegui fazer funcionar ... era uma coisa muito simples que eu não estava prestando atenção. E que eu tinha um script para Input da direção do meu carro, só tive que mudar o Input para Simpleinput. rs ... vou tentar fazer os botões acelerar e travar. :):)

    desculpe, eu aqui novamente. Mas eu tenho um problema ao implementar os botões de aceleração e freio em meu projeto. Você poderia me dizer se há algum lugar que explique isso? ... As poucas coisas que encontrei não funcionaram.

    You simply add a ButtonInputUI or KeyInputUI component to the target buttons, configure the Button/Key in Inspector, remove the Button component and use SimpleInput.GetButton/SimpleInput.GetKey in your script.

    Portanto, tenho dois scripts, um que controla o carro e outro que tem as entradas "Horizontal" "Vertical", e ambos interagem entre si. Eu teria que criar um script para os botões?

    [code = CSharp] using System.Collections;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using UnityEngine;

    public class Carro_Input: MonoBehaviour
    {

    Carro carro;

    void Start ()
    {
    carro = GetComponent <Carro> ();
    }
    public void Update ()
    {
    carro.gui = SimpleInput.GetAxis ("Horizontal");
    carro.acc = SimpleInput.GetAxis ("Vertical");
    }
    }
    [/código]
    Este é o código de entrada. A entrada simples é o que eu mudei para trabalhar na roda antes.

    Please check out the example scene that comes with the plugin because it has both a steering wheel and some buttons, similar to your setup.

    To get a value from the steering wheel, you declare
    public SteeringWheel steeringWheel;
    variable in your own script and read steeringWheel.GetClampedValue() or steeringWheel.GetAngle(). If you prefer, you can also use SimpleInput plugin which has a built-in steering wheel prefab.

    Hi, I use PyQt5 Python when the image is facing the steering wheel. What is the code?

    was wondering if you want to make the car steer by itself based on a target position for the car to steer to, how would you get the steering wheel angle to turn to? ie; get the -1,1 value for the steering wheel.

    You can call GetClampedValue(). P.S. Sorry I misunderstood. I don't know how to estimate a target rotation for the steering wheel, unfortunately.
