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.
By determine the driver's intended path through steering-wheel torque, Sentient's steering function controls the vehicle according to driver intended path as well as isolate unnecessary disturbances from the driver.
With Sentient's steering function a brand’s steering-feel DNA can be provided throughout the vehicle range since the torque build-up is consistent and hardware independent.
Sentient produces steering feel for both conventional electric power steering, angle-overlay systems and steer-by-wire.
