The ECO Car

Some of the advantages of steer by wire technology are clearly apparent, as demonstrated in the Shell Eco-marathon, an energy saving competition. The goal of the Shell Eco-marathon competition is build a vehicle with the highest possible fuel efficiency – a car that can cover the greatest possible distance on a single liter of fuel. To do well, the vehicle design must be optimized and streamlined to reduce all conceivable sources of energy loss. With this goal in mind, an electronic steering system enables optimal use of space in the vehicle.
