Electric Power Steering (EPS)

Electric Power Steering (EPS)

Electric Power Steering (EPS) is a steering system in vehicles that utilizes electric power to assist the driver in steering the vehicle. It has replaced traditional hydraulic power steering systems in many modern cars due to its advantages in terms of fuel efficiency and flexibility. 

EPS systems use an electric motor to assist the driver's steering input. The electric motor is typically mounted on the steering column or the steering gear assembly and is controlled by an electronic control unit (ECU). The ECU receives input from various sensors, such as the steering angle sensor and vehicle speed sensor, to determine the level of assistance required.

When the driver turns the steering wheel, the ECU calculates the amount of assistance needed based on the driving conditions. The electric motor then applies torque to the steering mechanism, assisting the driver in turning the wheels. The level of assistance can be adjusted based on vehicle speed, driving mode, and other factors.

Electric Power Steering (EPS) has become a standard feature in many vehicles due to its advantages in terms of fuel efficiency, flexibility, and improved steering control. As automotive technology continues to advance, EPS systems are expected to further evolve, integrating with advanced driver assistance systems and contributing to enhanced safety and driving experience.
