Electric Power Steering (EPS) is a full electric system, which reduces the amount of steering effort by directly applying the output from an electric motor to the steering system. In this paper, the constitutions and its operational mechanism of electric power steering system, and the construction and the equivalent circuit of the DC motor used in EPS were introduced; and the EPS hardware framework based on the ARM was presented and the EPS motor control strategy was designed. The full-car tests were performed and the results confirmed that the system designed was stable and credible, and can meet the requirements of steering performance.
