Steering is the most important way of intervention in the driving- dynamic performance for the driver. With today’s steering system, the steering wheel and wheels are mechanically connected to each other, while the resistance created by the driver at the wheel is supported hydraulically or electrically. There has been a scientific quest for many years to achieve an active steering system. The aim of this is to couple the fixed and mechanical connection between the steering wheel, axle and wheels, and to replace it with hydraulic and/or electric actuators.
Without the authentic feeling for the real roadway condition, a vehicle could basically be steered by a By-Wire-System, however only with the use of a Force; respectively a Tactile Feedback System, for the transfer of information about road conditions and that of the vehicle to the driver becomes viable in a non-mechanical steering system
With EARSS (Electronic Adaptive Redundant Steering System) a universally useable Force –Feedback-System is able for the first time to transform the purely electronically transferred feedback of the driving dynamic conditions of the vehicle and its steering axles into a realistic non- “synthetical and artificial” steering feeling. EARSS enables the haptic feedback of steering forces directly to the driver in a previously inexistent way.
Very high generateable moment of torque on the actual steering wheel
Very high torque resistence <0.006Nm
