Sentient's steering function controls the vehicle according to the driver's intended path and it isolates unnecessary disturbances from the driver. This is achieved by determine the intended path through steering-wheel torque.
In conventional steering systems, the driver’s intended vehicle path is dictated by the steering-wheel angle. That means the steering-wheel angle is also influenced by external disturbances from tyres, such as longitudinal ruts.
Sentient produces steering feel for both conventional electric power steering, angle overlay systems and steer-by-wire.
