A Scott Russell linkage converts linear motion, to (almost) linear motion in a line perpendicular to the input. These linkages are often used in front wheel drive vehicles with solid rear axles to control lateral movement, as they do not share the disadvantages of the asymmetric Panhard rod and are simpler and more compact than Watt's linkage.
