The handle concepts are a two-part design. The handles feed the bobsleigh driver with the results taken from the MEMS gyroscope, but the gyroscopes, along with the other major components, are housed within a HUB, fixed within the bobsleigh itself.
Since bobsleighs are currently controlled with two rings, pulled each way to move the bobsleigh higher or lower on the track, these handles are the most basic starting point for development.
As the bobsleigh moves down the track, the rings will light up, indicating that they need to be pulled to move the bobsleigh into an optimum route. The information is sent to the handles through the leads, which are fed through the pulley steering system. The brushed aluminium rings are also very lightweight.
