French term or phrase: sollicitations du conducteur
La détermination d'une deuxième vitesse, correspondant au couple volant/conducteur, par le procédé d'estimation selon l'invention permet de prendre en compte les très faibles sollicitations du conducteur sur le volant. En effet, sur les très faibles sollicitations du conducteur, des frottements présents entre le volant et le moteur électrique, liés aux diverses pièces et engrènements mécaniques de la direction assistée, empêche une sollicitation du moteur électrique.

(very slight) movements by the driver


Explanation:
You haven't said what this patent is for, but I assume it's some kind of vehicle and a "conducteur" is a human driver.

disagree  Daryo: the ST is a patent=> precise language required, no room for "personal preferences" // "une sollicitation" [be it by a living being or by some dead weight = makes no difference] may or may not result in "a movement" but it's for sure NOT the same .

  -> Your constant disagrees are often difficult to understand, but you've really excelled yourself this time.

disagree  Tony M: 'sollicitation' is about the force (effort) being applied — as Daryo says, this may or may not result in movement. Not necessarily: it could be effort used to resist a tendency for the steering wheel to move; in engineering these are 2 diff. things

  -> Unless the steering wheel is locked, almost any effort will result in movement.

very subtle steering adjustments/movements


Explanation:
I found examples of all of these, It's about how a vehicle handles and the reactivity of the mechanism to small changes in the steering movements/actions/adjustments made by the driver. There are examples of all of these. I found and example of Cyril's suggestion: "input", it just sounds a tad clunky to me when referring to a human being; it would depend on if it is a technical manual or a commercial, as well as on personal preference.

Example sentence(s):
  • Direct Adaptive Steering transmits the driver’s steering inputs, moving the tires through translating the driver’s steering into electronic signals,

agree  Frank Foley: "Adjustments" is more specific than "movements" (and "very subtle" is superfluous).
