Hyundai Mobis develops foldable steering system

Hyundai Mobis announced a foldable steering system optimized for future mobility vehicles. System features include a steering wheel that moves forwards and backward up to 25cm, a new column, a reaction force control device, and applied a sliding rail mechanism, all of which impact system durability and reliability. The company is filing patents globally.

The system enables designs including storage where the steering wheel can be retracted into the dashboard, in addition to the foldable one. The foldable steering system is compatible with Steer by Wire (SBW) that controls steering with electrical signals by connecting the steering wheel with a device designed to deliver the steering force generated from the steering wheel to the wheels. Redundancy design of core electronic parts including sensors and ECU in the system, ensures that the vehicle is capable of maintaining normal steering in an emergency.
