In-Car Cameras — Good for Watching Hand Positioning

Watch Tony’s struggle to hold the wheel out of the hairpin in the very last shot of this video…don’t skip ahead, this one’s worth every second.

Ryan’s upper wing on his right hand needs some additional fine tuning, though.  It’s lacking a groove that would make his job a whole lot easier. The current design challenges him outside the home position, and this distraction is costing him since the lower signal-to-noise ratio makes it harder to concentrate on the contact patches’ feel.

Since drivers don’t think about how their hands operate the steering wheel, they operate it in what is called subconscious competent state.

This is why in-car cams are so important.
