In self-driving vehicles, it is necessary to control the steering system fully. In this paper, the pressure and the velocity distributions on the surface of the vehicle’s body under the influence of wind have been studied at different angles (35°, 90°, and 125°). The parameters that affect the steering system of the self-driving vehicle have been studied, affected by another vehicle (SUV) using the CFX ANSYS (18.2) and the SOLIDWORKS simulation programs. The torque and the effort have been calculated on the steering system by using the mathematical equation in the MATLAB program. The results have showed the highest torque and the effort values when the wind has faced the car at an angle of 125 degrees and the highest drag value when the vehicle has been in front of the SUV. The maximum pressure distribution is recorded when the air is 90 degrees. The highest effort is on the steering wheel when the SUV is next to the vehicle.
