Continental has introduced steering intervention to go with its electronic stability control (ESC) systems. Standard ESC systems only use the brakes and traction control to correct a vehicle's trajectory, but Conti's Active Steering Control system introduces a means to alter the steering angle. This improves the course-correction ability of the ESC system, while allowing more braking force to be dedicated to deceleration. From an engineering standpoint, this is dang impressive, and probably a natural evolution of electric-assist steering systems. My driving-purist side doesn't care for this at all, but ESC has been remarkably effective in keeping vehicles on the road, so maybe this system can further improve upon that track record. I'm guessing that there's no chance of getting some sort of Rhys Millen Signature Edition software, though. [Hat tip - Auto IT Blog]
