As the steering wheel is the handshake of the car to the driver, multifunctional steering wheels include switches for controlling infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems. Joyson Safety Systems is not only using switches from a variety of suppliers, but as part of the Joyson Electronics Group we are able to provide our customers with latest switch technology including force based touch control and active haptics which also serve as visual feedback systems.

These technologies follow our vision of mobility safety as driver distraction can be reduced.
