A box for functions such as starting the car (the key is always in), windshield wipers, rear windshield wiper, etc, sits next to the steering wheel. The user reaches the buttons with the mouth stick.
He controls the windows with toggle switches. The small buttons on the top are for an emergency battery.
The user has to stop the car in order to operate these functions. If it starts to rain while he is driving he uses the windshield wiper sprayer (contact on wheelchair headrest) until he can stop the car and turn on the windshield wipers with the mouth stick, see associated tip.
