Integrating plyon® as an automotive sensor in interior applications allows to create seamless interactive surfaces in the center console or the steering wheel. Additional interior applications are found in the seat or in door panels The robustness of plyon® makes handling of abuse forces a problem of the past. plyon® is the automotive pressure sensor allowing the biggest leap among automotive sensor types when it comes to design freedom. The flexibility and low overall height of our sensors make the integration into curved surfaces possible and therefore provides designers and engineers with a whole new level of freedom. Adaptive User Experience is a major trend and plyon® is perfectly suited to be applied in morphing and deforming structures as our TrueZero™ technology ensures signal integrity during bending. An integration into the steering wheel provides the required data to ensure a smooth transition of control - from driver to vehicle and back, safely adjusting the degree of assistance and automation.
As a manufacturer of hand-held/hand-guided equipment you can now analyze the operator presence and force directly at the products’ interface, e.g. the power tool handles. Integrating force sensors, respective readout electronics and integrated data analysis unlicks a safe handling and interaction experience without the need to change how users interact with their products. plyon® monitors the usage of the power tool and works as a safety sensor. This creates safe and human centered power tools.
We enable usage data collection for power tool fleet management, more precisely the real-time detection of device misuse. Our clients incorporate the generated data in their predictive maintenance and pay-per-use business models.
plyon® allows the detailed analysis of interaction forces between the user and the product. the sensor modules can be used to create new ways of interacting with smart products and make dedicated interaction surfaces smart. plyon® enables a more immersive user experience (UX), for example thanks to the prediction of user intent based on touch and force interactions. plyon® can work as an intuitive interaction channel for their users as an Augmented Reality sensor, Mixed Reality sensor, Virtual Reality sensor, smart home sensor, gaming sensor or robot assistants benefit greatly when opening up this intuitive interaction channel.
Despite more and more automation, people working manually remains central to many tasks in manufacturing. plyon® sensors enable professional wearables in highly industrialized environments, collecting data of manual assembly or manufacturing processes, unlocking completely new optimization possibilities for quality assurance.
