Electric power steering (EPS) is more of less a standard fitment across most of the vehicle models. However, autonomous driving poses several interesting challenges to the steering technology community. First, once vehicles start to operate by themselves, steering systems will expect to cater to loss-of-assist mitigation in order to provide a safety net as and when the EPS powerpack fails to provide assist for steering the vehicle. This will therefore force steering suppliers to migrate from fail safe systems to fail operational systems for steering.Second, autonomous driving does not require humans to drive the vehicle, in which case the use of steering wheel is made redundant. This then allows OEMs and steeri
