tacterion develops smart surface solutions to enable the next generation of interactive and responsive products. We create the tactile internet of the future by bringing the sense of touch to products.

Our sensor technology plyon® flex is the basis of tactile digitization. plyon® flex combines resistive and capacitive sensing principles, enabling proximity, touch and force measurement in one layer. It is highly flexible and can be integrated in curved surfaces and applications that bend during operation. Showing unique technological advantages, the tacterion sensor platform is the basis for smart products.
