Within the next year, Japanese car maker Nissan will introduce next generation steering technology into some of its cars that does away with the mechanical rack and pinion set up. In the new system, known as steer-by-wire, sensors detect when a driver turns the wheel, sending electrical signals to the tyres so they respond faster and with more accuracy. A camera mounted on the car's rear-view mirror will assess the road ahead and detect changes in the car's direction. In conventional steering system, the car turns via a mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the tyres.
