SmartSteer

The SmartSteer steering unit enables you to operate vehicle functions such as windscreen wipers, indicators, and headlights easily and safely, while at the same time keeping control of the steering wheel.

Working

The SmartSteer set consists of: SmartSteer unit, SmartControl, various cable trees, a receiver and a steering wheel adapter. SmartSteer works in combination with the SmartControl controller box connected to the vehicle. For almost all vehicle makes and models, a solution is available whether it uses CAN-Bus, Multiplex or conventional electronics to operate the secondary controls of the vehicle.

The CAN-Bus version is connected directly to the comfort CAN-Bus of the vehicle and enables alternative operation of the secondary functions, such as wipers, lighting, and directional indicators, for example.  The SmartControl sends CAN messages directly to the vehicle to operate the various functions. Time-consuming modifications such as disassembling the steering column and soldering electronics are rendered a thing of the past.

Comfort and safety

SmartSteer has been developed so that it is possible to operate the secondary functions whichever position the steering wheel is in. The function keys can be operated easily with minimal effort. The ergonomic design provides good grip and support which 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 function keys on the display are illuminated, which makes it easier to operate the SmartSteer in the dark. If the SmartSteer is not needed, it can be easily removed by means of a quick-release button and the original controls can be used again.

SmartSteer is approved in accordance with the guidelines from Automotive EMC (95/54/EG, ISO 7638).

Installation

An installation manual and a clear wiring diagram is supplied to aid a quick and simple connection to the vehicle.  SmartSteer works with a Microsoft Windows Interface for installation and diagnosis.
