When operating vehicles with driver assistance systems, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving functions, the following still applies: the driver is responsible and must be able to control his vehicle at all times. This means that steering maneuvers by ADAS systems such as lane keeping and lane change assistants must be able to be influenced manually by the driver at any time. The steering torque required for this - also known as overpressure torque - must not exceed 3 Nm. The CLSx steering sensor is ideal for investigating this overpressure torque, as it delivers high-resolution results even in this small measurement range. The original steering wheel with all functions, including airbag and capacitive hands-off detection, is retained. Due to the very compact size and the low weight, the sensor has a low mass inertia torque. In addition, it operates with particularly low friction. All this ensures that the mounted steering sensor has hardly any influence on the steering system of the production vehicle. The steering behavior thus remains equivalent to that of the production vehicle.
