BlinkSTOP came about as a solution to a problem that long-time Westfield kit car owner Mike Rowland had spotted while out on Club drive events. With surprising regularity, drivers would accidentally leave on their indicators, sometimes for miles after the last turn.
The combination of crash helmet, noise and concentration on the road ahead meant that the drivers would sometimes overlook the dashboard warning. To solve the problem at source, BlinkSTOP was developed.
BlinkSTOP was instantly popular within the Club and soon after, BeamSTOP was conceived.
BeamSTOP intelligently controls your headlamps using a momentary-on push button on your steering wheel. If the lights are already on, BeamSTOP switches the lamps from dipped beam to main beam. A second button push returns the headlights to dipped beam. Uniquely, if the headlights are off when the button is pressed, BeamSTOP will flash the main beam.
and the future
With the success of BlinkSTOP, the underlying technology was found to be well-suited to a wireless control system and the progression to a detachable steering wheel was a natural step, resulting in FREEWheel. With the addition of a user interface and incorporating BlinkSTOP, BeamSTOP and an IVA fog light mode, FREEWheel is now the most modern, most advanced and most flexible wireless steering wheel controls system available today.
Future projects, some now in development, include a traction control system.
