Steering systems have always been a critical balance between safety, vehicle dynamics and cost. Furthermore, today they play an important role in both fuel efficiency, through helping reduce the energy used within the vehicle, and in establishing the character of the vehicle from a driving point of view.
Over the past decade vehicle chassis as a whole, and steering systems in particular, have begun radical changes that are part of the revolution in both electrification and systems integration. Today designers seek to integrate sensor technology, electronic and mechatronic systems in progressively introducing Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems. However, from a customer perspective on the one hand steering is one of the most visible or tangible aspects of vehicle quality in driving when quality is compromised (through NVH issues), while on the other hand, when executed well, a steering system is all but transparent to the driver.

Essentially there are therefore two groups of factors that can be influenced by steering systems: Aspects that influence the customer experience and impact of customer expectations; and Aspects that are not apparent to the customer but that have a strong influence of the vehicle’s overall performance.
To a number of commentators and OEMs ‘steering feel’ has become termed as contributing to the essential ‘DNA” of the vehicle, and it is therefore an essential aspect of competitive advantage or position.

About this report

This report begins by examining steering feel and the increasing effect of vehicle electrification and looks at steering and chassis performance. The report goes on to consider the key drivers including fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions, steering design, materials considerations and the packaging dilemma.

Furthermore the report looks at the latest steering system trends, in particular electrically power assisted steering (EPAS), electro-hydraulic power steering (EHPS), electric power steering (EPS), active front steering (AFS), four-wheel steering, steer-by-wire, automated parking and NVH reduction.
