Flexible Technology and Material Options for Automotive Capacitive Sensors


Today’s innovative sensors are transforming the automotive vehicle into a sophisticated electronic device on wheels, and the increased demand for electronic content in vehicles requires flexible materials and technologies that allow for space and weight savings. This 30-minute Webinar explores the delivery of these solutions, which utilize automated methods to optimize material use, reduce assembly steps, and deliver lower total cost of ownership while meeting the industrial designers' intent.

This session will include an overview of:

  • Capacitive technologies
  • Available flexible materials and technology options for automotive applications with an eye to design guide considerations
  • How these solutions create a more efficient and affordable design process

A Q&A session will follow the technical presentation.
