Touch sensor solutions for innovative human-machine interfaces (HMI)

Dr Clemens will present trends in automotive HMI systems, and how PolyIC follows these trends with the decoration and touch sensor technologies within the KURZ Group. The presentation will show current solutions on the market as well as new prototypes and demonstrators, with special focus on PolyIC's recent smart crystal steering wheel demonstrator, which was made in cooperation with Swarovski. Another highlight will be display stacks with PolyIC touch sensors and KURZ IMD decoration based on plastic panels.
