“We are very delighted to be recognized in the Materialica Design + Technology award. This theme is exactly to which we focus on when creating innovative products with our customers and partners. Canatu provides design freedom and intuitive user experience with the unique CNB materials. They enable smart 3D touch surfaces combining sleek interior design, usability and tactile sensing with electronics,” said Juha Kokkonen, Canatu CEO.
Canatu’s CNB films and sensors are used to create a seamless interior design. Thin, transparent and 3D formed sensor films replace traditional mechanical operating controls. Smart 3D touch surfaces integrate functions and controls discretely to the interiors for an unobtrusive in-car experience. At the same time, driver distraction is decreased enabling increased safety.
