How does the Martin Roller Tracker work?

Always remember the basic philosophy of controlling conveyor belts:

With a rotating roller, the belt always goes to the point where it first touches this roller!

In the figure in the media gallery the tire steers to the right. Due to the design with the pivot mechanism in the middle, the Martin Roller Tracker starts to rotate: this causes it to be at an angle and the belt is therefore forced to go to the point where it first touches the rotating roller, in other words to the left and therefore the belt will run back into the middle.
