In the context of automated driving a variety of different technologies will hit the market. Increasing levels of automated driving will have an influence on functions and styling of future steering wheels. Based on a general view on possible automation levels and boundary conditions, three different automated vehicle types have been identified. Those needs and requirements for steering wheel systems will be discussed in this paper. These range from increased sensing functions for driver state, additional input and communication technologies to new steering wheel shapes and foldable steering wheels.
