Spacedrive is a cutting-edge collection of electronic systems that use digital technology to make driving simple and safe for users with a wide range of differing needs. These systems allow you to control steering, braking and accelerating with the minimum of movement and effort, enabling you to drive safely even if you have limited movement or muscle weakness that make standard car controls difficult.
Spacedrive combines accessibility with modern technology, to provide users with the opportunity to continue to drive independently, even in the event of disability or injury. The different options enable safe driving, even if you suffer from muscle weakness or limited arm strength. The wide choice of controls makes it possible to modify your vehicle to suit your individual needs; options include multiple types of the joystick, handlebar steering, mini steering wheels, gas and brake controls, and many more.
SDL is an official UK installer of the Spacedrive Electronic systems so please explore the range of solutions below, please contact us if you would like to find out more about how these solutions could help you maintain your driving independence.

We'll tailor the controls to your individual strengths
Enables safe driving
Many Safety Features and full control with minimal movement
2 and 4-way Joystick control
Dual-function and safe to use. For two- or four-directional control. Mechanically adjustable for dynamic and flexible variation.
The 2-way Joystick will operate either the steering or the brake and accelerator.
With the 4-way joystick, the accelerator/brake and steering the joystick element separately controls the respective actuator motors. The movements of the joystick are converted into steering signals on the one hand and into accelerator and brake signals on the other hand.
Optionally, we can integrate the Gear Control system for simpler gear selection. (Gear Control is also available as a separate unit)
SDL can offer the Spacedrive system with various steering solutions to meet your needs. Besides Tiller and Foot steering, a mini steering wheel and Rotational steering device is available
Mini Steering Wheel
The mini-steering-wheel has a diameter of approx. 120 mm and allows for very comfortable operation of the vehicle. The movement of the mini-steering-wheel is converted to a steering signal and executed by the steering actuator motor.
Rotational Steering Device
With the 4-way joystick, the accelerator/brake and steering the joystick element separately controls the respective actuator motors. The movements of the joystick are co
Acceleration and Braking lever
A 2-way inear or Radial digital ‘lever’ for controlling acceleration and braking with lightning-quick responsiveness.
The accelerator/ brake slider operating element directly controls the accelerator and braking actuator motor on your vehicle. The movement of the accelerator/brake slider towards the accelerator or brake signal is implemented by the respective accelerator/brake motor.
Spacedrive is available with additional modules and solutions for secondary functions. We recommend that you get in touch with SDL to discuss your requirements and to arrange an assessment with one of our experts.
