Modifications include relocating switches and customising control configurations for windscreen wipers, electric windows, climate control, headlight dip and high beam to make them accessible to the driver.
These systems are designed and constructed on an individual basis and therefore differ in their complexity and method of operation. Past systems have involved relocating the indicators to the headrest, custom hand control set-ups and fingertip operated systems.
High involvement situations like freeway exits, round-abouts and merging lanes require a lot of concentration and control, and indicating can be difficult. This modification simplifies indicating to ensure that the driver can accelerate and brake, steer and indicate with confidence and control. Once the maneuver has been made, the indicators switch off; Just like in your original system. A manual canceling button is included for situations such as lane changing.
The picture gallery showcases some of the past Custom Accessory Control Systems created by Problem Management Engineering. These are generally installed where the disabled driver has impaired hand function or their hands are required to operate other devices, as may be the case with paraplegic, quadriplegic, amputee and hemiplegic drivers for example.
PME can also install a voice activated control unit whereby various secondary functions can be operated by voice command. The microphone for voice activation can optionally be integrated into the unit or mounted close to the driver.
The sound control unit provides access to several secondary functions. By holding the Sound Control button a series of ascending tones will be heard. Each function is represented by a different tone and if the button is released at that tone, the vehicle function will operate. The button for sound control will be mounted in an accessible location for the driver such as next to the hand or in the headrest.
Headrest Indicators and Secondary Functions
PME can also install buttons to operate a vehicles indicators or secondary functions on a control unit that is attached to the vehicle headrest. These can be operated either by direct button press or optionally by voice or sound control. Headrest controls can optionally be installed into the vehicle's original OEM headrest.
