Bruce Ahnafield founded Ahnafield Corporation in 1968. In the early 1970's, Bruce made a commitment to the search for mobility solutions for the independence of the disabled. He decided to make adaptive equipment the primary business of Ahnafield Corporation. Bruce started the development of a high tech driving system in the mid 1970's. By the early 1980's, this system, the first "drive-by-wire" system in the world, was completed and patented. "Drive-by-wire" refers to controlling a vehicle's acceleration, braking and steering functions electronically. Presently, Ahnafield Corporation is one of only two companies in the world that manufacture a "drive-by-wire" system. Recently, a redesign of this system was completed and worldwide patents have been applied for. Outlets for these products are located throughout the North American continent, England, Israel, Germany, and Japan. Bruce is a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers and he is involved with writing standards for this industry. He has developed standards for structural modifications, steering, brake, accelerator, and secondary accessory controls.
