Ergonomic Steering Wheel Performs Multiple Functions

The company's modular steering wheel multi-function unit supports up to 14 freely assignable functions, allowing drivers to handle nearly all vehicle functions without having to take their hands off the steering wheel or eyes off the road. Reportedly, the multi-function unit provides an i-Pod feeling at the steering wheel. The central element is a rotary wheel or rotary roll about, around which a closed ring with a rocking function (about the x/z axes) or four segmented buttons are arranged. In a basic version, functions such as air conditioner, hands-free phone, or the radio can be addressed directly via the steering wheel. An integrated or separate modular E-box is available for deploying the unit into the data bus, e.g., LIN, CAN, FlexRay. RAFI GMBH & CO. KG, Berg, Germany. +49-(0)751-89-0
