In addition to standard components such as direction indicator switches, windscreen wiper switches and rotary couplers, the latest complex steering column modules also contain electronics to monitor functions such as the steering angle, as well as information on the controls mounted around the steering wheel (via the LIN bus). These electronics also include cruise control switches and gear selector systems.
