Hannover Messe 2016: Human-Machine Interfaces

Stepless control devices with flexible pressure sensors

Research News /

Silicone is so soft and flexible that it is easily deformed by the pressure of a finger. Researchers at Fraunhofer have recently created sensors made from this flexible material, making it easier to steplessly control devices. At the Hannover Messe, they are presenting a glove that can measure pressure and a steering wheel that lets the driver control music, light and ventilation at the touch of a finger (Hall 2, Stand C16/C22).
