Electric power steering systems have never been safer

It’s almost thirty years since the first series production Electric Power Steering (EPS) appeared in the 1988 Suzuki Cervo. The motor vehicle has come a long way since then: Lane Assist, self-parking and higher levels of self-driving systems are all almost commonplace in the cars of today, and all of these rely heavily on the integrity of the vehicle’s EPS.

Electric Power Steering for increased driver comfort

Electric Power Steering (EPS) have advanced a great deal, and with the proliferation of Advanced Driver Assist Systems, OEMs are now able to add features which not only enhance performance but also significantly improve driver comfort.

•    Improved driver feel and feedback without losing the slow speed power assistance
•    EPS takes control so that the driver can relax
•    Reducing noise levels for quieter cabins

For your next stage of steering test systems

Power assist steering continues its large shift from hydraulic assist HPS to electric assist EPS. Just like the steering system, the actuator of the test machine has also had major changes from hydraulic pressure to the use of electric motors. This is true not only because of the non-hydraulic aspect of the tested parts but two other important aspects to the testing facility – testing time and energy utilization.
