SAAB Power Steering

SAAB and Pektron
In the year 2010 Pektron received an order from SAAB Ab for development of a new advanced Power
Steering system. The following goals were set and achieved:
– Creation of low-level drivers for the SAAB Power Steering system

The project was completed on time and budget. Sadly, shortly after the project was completed, SAAB
went out of business and therefore the new system never went into production.
