Touch and pressure sensitive material without electronic sensors for intuitive and eye-free control of a car’s features while driving

Project description

A product that won’t take a driver’s eyes from the road

EU roads are the safest in the world. While technology helps to increase the level of safety of our cars, today’s vehicles are packed with distractions. Touchscreens, for example, slow driver response times. The EU-funded Tangi0 project will introduce a new method for operating in-car controls. It’s based on an intuitive, tactile material with distinctive shapes that allow drivers to operate it eye-free. This reduces the safety hazards of driving distractions. The technology has been tested with Tier 1 automotive supplier, Novares. Tangi0 will design the integrated system and fully commercialise the solution by reaching the market. Designed to keep a driver’s eyes on the road, the project’s overall aim is to reduce the number of road accidents in Europe.
