High Availability Electric Power Steering
Nexteer's high availability EPS solution integrates back-up hardware and software into one system. Hardware components are intelligently optimized through redundancies in torque and position sensors, electronic control units (ECUs), winding motors and a dual set of vehicle power and communication connectors. In addition to hardware redundancies, Nexteer's simultaneous, multi-path processing software further enhances the safety net as the industry moves toward varying levels of automation.
In Steer-by-Wire (SbW), the mechanical connection between the road wheels and the steering wheel is replaced with electronics and actuators on the steering column and rack. This system, supporting both manual and automated driving, opens new possibilities for advanced safety features, vehicle light-weighting and packaging flexibility. Nexteer's SbW emulates the "feel of the road" and offers a wide performance range - from sporty to luxury. In addition, the system's variable steering ratio enhances maneuverability, as well as factors into Nexteer's SbW steering feel achievement.
As a key automated driving enabler, Nexteer's SbW supports other advancements - such as Nexteer Steering on Demand™ System and Nexteer Quiet Wheel™ Steering. With the press of a button or simply by grabbing the steering wheel, Nexteer's Steering on Demand™ System enables the safe, intuitive transitions between manual and automated driving. Quiet Wheel™ Steering enables the steering wheel to remain still during automated driving mode, even while the vehicle is in the process of turning. Quiet Wheel™ Steering eliminates potential distractions and hazards of a fast-rotating steering wheel in front of the driver during hands-off driving, enhancing safety and sense of peace in the cabin.
