Definition Edit

In a steer-by-wire system

the mechanical link between the steering wheel and the vehicle wheels is removed, and the driver's intent is translated into signals to a motor or motors that turn the wheels.[1]

Overview Edit

"Among possible advantages, steer-by-wire would reduce vehicle weight, eliminate the safety hazard presented by the protruding steering column, offer greater flexibility in designing the car interior, and enable customizable driver interfaces since the steering mechanism could be designed and installed as a modular unit."[2]
