Energy-saving EPS. It’s there whenever you need it.
Power steering reduces the amount of wheel turning and effort needed to park or make tight turns. Most conventional systems use hydraulic power assistance, but the constant operation of the hydraulic pump results in huge power transmission losses.
We decided to reduce such losses and improve steering effectiveness by using electric power instead. This power comes from a motor controlled by electrical signals.
As you turn the wheel, a sensor judges the resistance, and the motor is activated to give appropriate amount of assistance. There’s no wasted energy, so you save fuel, and eliminating the hydraulic pump frees up space as well. Software controls power, so adding functions such as the suppression of car vibration to the steering wheel is easy.
