Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS)

Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS)

EPAS uses an electric motor instead of a hydraulic pump. This results in control that can be precisely programmed to enable technologies that help steering control, such as pull-drift compensation and active nibble control. The EPAS electric motor operates only when steering assistance is required. This is a better way of managing energy than traditional hydraulic systems, which run continuously.
