For DST mode the steering torque input is measured using strain gauges bonded directly to the steering stem so we are not measuring deflection but the force that we are applying at the bars to counter the servo action.

More modern electro-hydralic power steering systems with force feedback used for cars adopt a similar concept but use an electro magnetic transducer to deduce the torque - I did consider this as a possible steering stem solution using second hand ebay parts.

Using even a modest micro-controller and the servo controller closed loop adjustments you can easily keep up with the data rate from the GPB dlo interface.

I think you have pretty much grasped what I have tried to do; capture the counter-steering effect input by the rider and allow the resultant GPB physics engine output control everthing else   :)

And that's brillant !
