Offer a joystick to replace the steering wheel, the gear stick, the throttling and brake pedals, handbrake, the signals, lights, and horn buttons. The joystick can be connected to a port on the front center of each of the front seats, between the driver’s legs. it is leaned forward in its room as part of the seat, and when the driver wants to drive, they bring it upward.
This car should have an automatic gearshift system.
There’s currently no competitor. The Drive-by-joystick system has always seemed promising and future-like, but all the joystick concepts as of the date have been incomplete and not successful. but, far as you see, this design is almost conceptually complete and even much safer than the traditional steering system. My own evaluation of the pros and cons is:
Moderator: Tesla has eliminated the gearshift and other stalks with the mid-year 2021 Model S/X.
