Drivers can easily be distracted by their handheld devices while they are driving and this ultimately contributed to the increase of road accidents. This work proposed a steering wheel cover that is designed using an array of touch sensors TTP223 and Raspberry Pi 3 microprocessor. A tilt sensor is also incorporated in order to mimic the movement of the system. Using Python as the main programming language and the Raspbian OS, for a sample size of 40 touch inputs, the system yielded an accuracy of 97.5 % and 75.0 % in its input detection during stationary and driving mode. The results have shown that as a proof of concept, the proposed system is capable of detecting touch inputs from the user’s hand and determining the position of the hands on the steering wheel.
