Active steering

The development of vehicle steering systems is characterized by the consistent introduction of hydraulic servo assist and the replacement of ball-and-nut-type steering in the car by the easier and more inexpensive rack-and-pinion steering. Recently, electromechanical power steering has been displacing hydraulic power steering in small and lightweight cars. By law, however, pure “steer-by-wire” technology is not yet permitted in motor vehicles. European Union safety regulations still require a mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the wheels of the vehicle.
