In 2016 Canatu was selected to participate in the STARTUP AUTOBAHN program. The founders of STARTUP AUTOBAHN are Daimler, Plug and Play, the University of Stuttgart, and ARENA2036. Participants displayed their prototypes at the end of program in the birthplace of the automobile – Stuttgart – on February 9th.
Canatu has, together with Faurecia, co-created a transparent, thermoformed touch sensor to operate power windows and seat functions on a seamless décor panel. The solution features a number of functions such as menu options, seat functions: heat, massage, vent, power window lifting and intuitive finger locators as all-in-one 3D touch sensor. The design and aesthetic advantages erase the need for mechanical buttons minimizing areas where dust and humidity can settle.
Whether it is a touch display, button, slider or light switch, Canatu makes possible a truly intuitive user experience. Canatu’s products enable touch features on flexible and 3D shaped devices.
