Automotive Interiors Virtual Live

Session: Future Interior Technologies
Topic: 3D touch switches for in-vehicle applications
Speaker: Mari Makkonen, Marketing Director, Canatu Oy

Automotive Interiors Virtual ‘Live’ on 1-2 December 2020 provided an excellent platform for discussions on the latest developments in smart surfaces, materials and HMIs.

Canatu’s Mari Makkonen, Marketing Director, opened the Future Interior Technologies session with a presentation on 3D touch switches for in-vehicle applications. She argued that autonomous driving calls for a complete rethink regarding HMIs. Seats and door trims will become more important as they are always closest to the driver, suggesting that with Canatu’s 3D touch technology, any surface can be smart and functional.

During her presentation, Mari revealed how smart 3D touch surfaces together with TS Tech’s decorative door trims offer an intuitive user experience and beautiful design, and showcased the two companies’ latest demonstrator – a decorative door trim with 3D touch switches to control the electric power seat adjustments. Following the presentation, TS TECH’s Steve Krantz, Vice President addressed questions in the live Q&A and panel discussion elaborating TS TECH’s point of view on the new, jointly developed concept.

We enjoyed the highly rewarding and insightful exchange of ideas, live interaction and networking through the event and beyond. Many thanks to all who joined our sessions.
