The steering column is a device intended primarily for connecting the steering wheel to the steering mechanism.
A steering column may also perform the following secondary functions:
- energy dissipation management in the event of a frontal collision;
- provide mounting for: the multi-function switch, column lock, column wiring, column shroud(s), transmission gear selector, gauges or other instruments as well as the electro motor and gear units found in EPAS and SbW systems;
- offer (height and/or length) adjustment to suit driver preference
For safety reasons, all modern cars feature a steering-column that will collapse in the event of a heavy frontal impact. This collapsible feature is so important because it ensures that excessive injuries to the driver via the steering column and shaft are avoided.
