The setup demonstrated here enables developers to drive a steering system in closed-loop mode for integration tests of the complete vehicle. No real loads of the road have to be simulated for these integration tests. The setup is therefore small, compact, and cost-effective, but thanks to its flexible structure, it can simulate a wide range of vehicle platforms. Angle gears make it possible to use multiple steering angle sensors in parallel, reducing the time needed for modifying the setup.
