we are programming a PID controller for the steering wheel angle.
I have a question about the variable steeringSpeed in the dwVehicleIOCommand. Is there more information on this, in particular on the progression until the target position is reached? Does the value remain constant until then?

The variable is no longer present in driveworks-3.5, or is called maxSteeringWheelSpeed.

Does the variable only serve as a speed limit under which you can operate freely?

Many thanks in advance.

Dear @p.gibson,
You can see in porting guide(DriveWorks SDK Reference: Porting Guide from SDK 2.2 to SDK 3.0) that steeringSpeed is replaced with maxSteeringWheelSpeed
