Remote deivices are systems that are specially designed to allows people with restricted mobility to operate specific aspects of their vehicle safely.
SmartSteer has been developed so that it is possible to operate the functions whatever position the steering wheel is in. The function keys can be operated easily with minimal effort. The ergonomic design provides good grip and support and allows both active operation and use in a comfortable position. Driving becomes more comfortable and more pleasant. The SmartSteer is suitable for both right-handed and left-handed drivers.
The system will operate up to 13 functions of a car from just one button, which can be fitted at various positions within the car allowing the driver to operate the functions with fingers, elbows, head etc. On pressing and holding the button, the system will cycle through the secondary functions of the vehicle, giving a bleep as it passes through each function. The function is selected by releasing the button at the appropriate bleep. Selecting the same function again will cancel its operation.
The mini keypad can be used with a variety of different hand controls and eliminates the need to remove the steering wheel, airbag and switchgear, and the need to perform risky & complex modifications. As such it significantly reduces installation time and labour, and prevents the customer’s vehicle from being off the road for lengthy periods of time.
These systems come as quick release steering balls or lollipops and allow users with restricted mobility to steer the wheel and operate the secondary functions of a car safely with one hand. Simply pressing a button activates the required function e.g. horn, indicators, lights etc.
