Electric power steering Product: Electric Power Steering.

Energy-saving electric power steering.
A car´s power steering reduces the amount of effort needed to park or make tight turns. However, since most conventional power steering systems use hydraulic power assistance, their  pump is in continuous operation, thereby leading to substantial energy loss.

By using electric steering, energy losses are reduced and improved steering is achieved. As you turn the wheel, a sensor judges the resistance and an electric motot is activated to give the necessary amount of assistance. There's no wasted energy since the electric motor is only activiated as needed. Fuel and space are saved by eliminating the hydraulic pump. Since the arrangement is controlled by electronic software, adding functions such as vibration supression to the steering wheel is easy.
