China Automotive Steering Systems Industry Report 2021: Major Automotive Suppliers and Manufacturers Deployed SBW That Will Show Promise in the Future – ResearchAndMarkets.com
The “China Automotive Steering Systems Industry Report, 2021” report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
The biggest difference between the SBW and the EPS is that the former removes the mechanical connection between the flywheel and the rack and uses the ECU to transmit commands instead. The SBW offers quick response, flexible installation, lighter weight and improved crash safety.
SBW technology was offered as early as 1950. After decades of development, it is now mass-produced on several Infiniti models. Although SBW still has issues such as high cost, immature technology, limited user acceptance, low penetration rate, etc., some auto vendors and manufacturers are very optimistic about SBW technology and make efforts here. There will be a number of production models using SBW.
In June 2021, China Automotive Systems, Inc. (CAAS) announced that Hubei Henglong Automotive Systems Group Co. Ltd., a unit of the company, had purchased 40% stake in Sentient AB, a Swedish automotive technology company. Sentient has patents in the field of wire control.
On June 5, 2021, Shanghai NASN Automotive Electronics Co., Ltd. launched three new chassis-by-wire products, including SBW system solutions that support L3-L4 autonomous driving. 6 redundancy functions ensure the normal operation of the steering system.
In 2020, Tesla planned to create a new team in Austin, Texas, USA, responsible for engines, transmission systems, and chassis technologies. When recruiting, Tesla asked candidates to have work experience in “SBW and brake / motor integration”. In the future, Tesla could be the first to apply SBW technology to Cybertruck battery-powered electric vans.
In June 2021, Great Wall Motors released Coffee Smart 2.0, equipped with an electronic mechanical SBW system which is the first domestic SBW technology to support L4 + autonomous driving. From power supply to sensors, controllers and actuators, it adopts a triple save design with ASIL D safety level. It is expected to be officially put into commercial application in 2023.
At present, some automobile steering system companies have started to deploy autonomous driving.
Nexteer Automotive can cover L1-L5 autonomous driving through its product portfolios of EPS, EPS high availability, SBW and others. 32% of EPS orders signed by the company concern L3-L5 ADAS / AD functions. Patents related to ADAS represented 22.7% of the company’s total in 2020.
In terms of autonomous driving and advanced driving assistance, JTEKT develops and produces EPS that meet the national standard ISO26262 for automotive functional safety. Thanks to the dual systemization of the torque sensor which monitors the operation of the driver and the motor drive which provides the steering assist torque, the durability of the EPS is improved. In addition, JTEKT has developed SBW technology for autonomous driving above L3.
