This dispenses the need for sophisticated actuator and complex sensors, which with the direct flow of between wheel and hand and have a detrimental effect on precision. At the heart of the system is a new with ingeniously devised that is designed to alter the gear ratio as the steering changes. Around the central the steering has an indirect ratio for straight-line stability, resulting in safety at high speeds. As as the steering wheel is turned to an of 5 degrees, the ratio increases and the steering feels far more In this way, the number of wheel turns from to lock is reduced by around 25 with the new direct-steer system. relatively small turns of the wheel are sufficient for changing when driving in city Meanwhile, high-speed twisty of country roads can be negotiated precisely and with enormous using relatively small movements.
