BMW has filed a really weird patent for a steering wheel with two joysticks that's designed for autonomous driving. I'm not sure how this is better than a regular steering wheel but it's interesting to say the least.

As part of the development of at least partially autonomous two-lane motor vehicles, the development of novel steering handles is also being considered, with the aid of which a driver can steer the vehicle in a non-automated driving mode that is still available, i.e. can specify or set its direction of travel. The steering wheels previously used for this require a relatively large amount of installation space, which could be used for other purposes at least if the vehicle is driving autonomously.
