SmartSteeringWheelCover / steering wheel cover


The Smart Steering Wheel Cover is an in-vehicle system designed to make driving experiences safer and more efficient. It collects data from driver’s smartphone accelerometer to detect how fast the driver is accelerating and braking. The less aggressive is the driver’s behaviour, the less fuel the vehicle consumes. The feedback is communicated to the driver in terms of vibration as warning of poor behaviour and gradual change of light as a reward to motivate fuel-efficient behaviour. The physical buttons embedded in the cover allow drivers to control their phones straight from the steering wheel without having to compromise safety.
