Electric power steering

Electric power steering
Electric power steering (EPS or EPAS) uses an electric motor to provide directional control to the driver, without any hydraulic systems. Sensors detect the position and torque of the steering column, and a computer module applies assistive torque via an electric motor coupled directly to either the steering gear or steering column. The EPS system is gradually replacing the hydraulic steering system and is likely to soon become main stream among automotive manufacturers.
