A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11884340B2) discloses a steering control device designed to assist in turning a steering wheel. The device comprises multiple calculators that work in tandem to calculate control amounts based on the turning state and intervention of a host control device. These calculators include a feedforward controller, proportional controller, integral controller, differential controller, and restriction processors to ensure the generated assistance force aligns with the target angle of the steering wheel. Additionally, the device includes features such as restricting control values within allowable ranges and adjusting control parameters when the host control device intervenes during steering.

Furthermore, the patented steering control device incorporates a turning direction determiner and correction processing unit to differentiate between backward and forward turning states of the steering wheel. In the event of a backward turning state, the correction processing unit adjusts the control amount to a smaller value, ensuring precise and efficient steering assistance. The device's intricate design and functionality aim to enhance the overall steering experience by providing accurate and adaptable assistance based on the specific turning conditions and external control interventions.
