by Autocar Pro News Desk , 11 Jan 2021


GHSP, a global provider of mechanical and electromechanical systems to the world's leading automotive and home appliance brands, today announced a suite of new automotive offerings aimed at redefining vehicle safety. The company has revealed the products at CES 2021.

The company aims to enhance a car’s centre console to increase safety and eliminate distractions with the introduction of its dual stack rotary and multifunction controller. These two controllers enable drivers to intuitively reach down and gain control of their car without having to take their eyes off the road. GHSP is also introducing grenlite, its line of UV-C treatment products, to personal vehicles. The UV-C system enables users to disinfect their vehicles with UV-C light that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including harder-to-kill pathogens such as Clostridium difficile (C. diff) and Human Coronavirus.

“The need to develop our technology to make people’s lives easier and safer, whether they are at home or on the road, has drastically become more important over the past year,” said Marc Smeyers, GHSP's Chief Technology Officer. “We are committed to creating highly advanced, intuitive control systems and multifunction devices that advance the future of automotives and introduce a new level of safety the world has come to expect.”

Dual stack rotary and multifunction controllers

The intuitive system enables drivers to quickly access and control the entire car with one multifunction controller, all without taking their eyes off the road. Dual stack rotary and multifunction controllers utilise GHSP’s utilize common core shifting technology to seamlessly combine multiple different vehicle functions into one easy-to-use controller.

Key features include:

- Configurable software settings that enable drivers to change feel and sensitivity.
- Built-in industry leading cybersecurity across multiple vehicle networks.

- Automatic Position Sensing to support safety applications and additional convenience features.

In-vehicle safety with Grenlite
Already in use in emergency services, mass transit and commercial vehicles, GHSP is rolling out its Grenlite technology to personal vehicles to help keep people safe from germs, from the moment they step into their vehicle until they arrive safely at home.

GHSP’s Grenlite technology works by recognising when a surface or environment has been used, and automatically emits a dose of UV-C light to clear the air or surface of harmful pathogens.

GHSP says its Grenlite system is connectable to a unique cloud-based monitoring system that not only provides precision control of each unit, but is also able to gather information that can be used to increase treatment effectiveness.
