Active front axle steering systems enable a steering angle to be produced at the front wheels which deviates from the steering wheel angle turned by the driver. This means they can provide the driver with support.
Due to its wide-ranging advantages compared to conventional hydraulic power steering, electro-hydraulic and electric power-steering systems (“EPS”) are becoming increasingly favoured.
Power steering provides better vehicle handling without the driver having to exert too much effort. A distinction is made between electric and hydraulic power steering.
Some passenger cars are equipped with rear-axle steering to improve vehicle dynamics.
