The introduction of new steering conceptsSteer-by-Wire (SBW) gives possibility to replace theconventional steering wheel by an alternative userinterface such as a sidestick. In SBW system the sidestickcan be used as user input element instead of a steeringwheel. The implementation of sidestick in theHuman-Machine-Interface (HMI) allows combiningthe conventional steering consisting of a steeringwheel, an accelerator and a brake pedal into a singleelement. Also the implementation of the sidestickcreates new, interesting and flexible design optionswhich can be used to transform the driver’s spatialenvironment. This article describes an active sidestickfor a vehicle which has been developed, integrated andtested in accordance of haptic, ergonomic and safetyrelevant requirements. The control strategies used forthe active attenuators of the sidestick have beeninvestigated and optimised using a Simulink model.
