Claim of US Patent No. 9,180,912

1. A method for steering torque compensation carried out in a controller of a vehicle having a steering system, comprising:
detecting a braking event from actual vehicle information;
determining an actual steering torque signal;
determining a torque compensation signal representative of a difference between the actual steering torque signal and a target
steering torque signal;

generating a request to implement the torque compensation signal; and
implementing the torque compensation signal during the detected braking event.
