New steering technology for future mobility
Quiet Wheel steering from Nexteer Automotive allows the steering wheel to remain still during automated driving mode—even while the vehicle is in the process of turning. This design aims to eliminate potential distractions and hazards of a fast-rotating steering wheel in front of the driver during hands-off driving.
Vehicles equipped with Quiet Wheel steering may also be fitted with a stowable steering column that retracts into the dashboard when automated driving is engaged, increasing available space for driver comfort and other activities.
Quiet Wheel steering and stowable steering column is centered around steer-by-wire. With steer-by-wire, algorithms, electronics, and actuators replace the mechanical steering connection between the roadwheels and the handwheel—which enables advanced safety and comfort features like Quiet Wheel steering and stowable steering column.
