Excelencias del Motor - - Technologia / Technology -

Steering wheels ha­ve go­ne th­rough a long mo­di­fi­ca­tion pro­cess, along with cars, al­ways gi­ving prio­rity to such ele­ments as er­go­no­mics, com­fort and sa­fety for dri­vers; all the way up to what we pre­sently know as multifunctional steering wheels. The “first steering wheels” we­re woo­den le­vers or hand­les. The cir­cu­lar steering wheel was in­tro­du­ced in the 20th cen­tury. The de­ve­lop­ment of elec­tro­nics and te­le­ma­tics in cars brought about mo­re ele­ments that could be con­tro­lled by dri­vers, but their con­cen­tra­tion should not be af­fec­ted.That is way mo­re fun­ctions we­re in­tro­du­ced in the steering wheel. No­wa­days, the­re are mul­ti­task keys, lo­ca­ted on the left and right si­des, so they can be ac­ti­va­ted by the dri­ver’s thumbs.
