Steering system reset explained:

 

Commonly referred to as a steering angle sensor reset in the auto service world, this procedure calibrates the sensors of on-board systems to the steering angles of a newly aligned vehicle.

This involves resetting the steering angle sensor. If required, yaw rate, torque angle and other steering-related sensors are also reset (see diagram below).

Most new vehicles are equipped with systems like electric power steering or electronic stability control and may require a steering system reset with an alignment.
