Japan's only driving assist system for people with arm disabilities
The FRANZ System enables hands-free driving by operation with the feet. After receiving direct technical guidance from the system's inventor, Eberhard Franz, Honda augmented the system with original technology to make it even easier to operate. Honda is Japan's only domestic automaker to offer a system that enables steering by back and forth rotation of the foot. All systems sold are customized to best fit the individual driver and Honda also helps disabled drivers with the driving instruction needed for them to obtain a license.
