Abstract: Recently electric power steering systems have been developed and are now provided in production vehicles. Electric power steering systems provide the driver with the correct steering assistance from an electric motor, calculated by the CPU from both vehicle velocity and input steering torque. In this paper, electric power steering systems will be described, and particularly their features, major components, performance and expected future trends.

Keywords: electric power steering; EPS; future trends; small cars; torque sensors; vehicle velocity; steering torque; vehicle speed; vehicle design.
