The patent application (Publication Number: US20240034408A1) describes a power steering controller for vehicles that includes various components to determine the feasibility of automatic or manual steering based on the vehicle's state and the driver's condition. The controller features a driving mode switching part that can transition between automatic steering, manual steering, and semi-automatic steering modes depending on the results of override determinations made by different parts of the system. For instance, the controller can switch to manual steering mode if automatic steering is not possible due to high torque detected in the steering wheel and the driver is touching the wheel.

Additionally, the power steering controller includes components such as torque detection parts, contact detection parts, and steering angle detection parts to accurately assess the driving conditions and driver input. The system can determine the appropriate steering mode based on factors like torque levels, driver interaction with the steering wheel, and the vehicle's steering angle. By integrating these features, the power steering controller aims to enhance the overall steering experience by seamlessly transitioning between different steering modes to ensure optimal control and safety for the driver and the vehicle.
