Francis W. Davis invented power steering. In the 1920s, Davis was the chief engineer for the truck division of the Pierce Arrow Motor Car Company, and he saw firsthand how hard it was to steer heavy vehicles. He developed a hydraulic power steering system that led to power steering. Power steering became commercially available by 1951.
