Title: STEERING ANGLE SENSOR, STEERING ANGLE SENSOR SYSTEM AND METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract:
The invention relates to a steering angle sensor (10) for a vehicle, said sensor having a rotor (12) which can be rotationally coupled to a steering wheel or a steering column (16), having a sampling unit (24) whose angle signals can be used to determine the relative angle of rotation of the rotor within one revolution of the rotor, and having an evaluation unit (30) for determining the absolute angle of rotation from the angle signals (32, 34) of the sampling unit and from additional signals (38). The invention is characterized in that the steering angle sensor is designed in such a manner that the evaluation unit receives and processes the additional signals from at least one vehicle system (36), which can be operated independently of the steering angle sensor, during operation of the steering angle sensor.
