Active Steering on the BMW 6 Series Coupé.

At the heart of BMW's Active Steering system is the planetary gear set incorporated into the steering column. The system uses an electric motor to vary wheel angle, increasing or decreasing it depending on the speed. Freeway cruising in the BMW 6 Series Coupé is remarkably smooth. At medium speeds, the steering ratio is very direct. At very low speeds, such as when parking, the system requires only two turns from lock to lock.
