The Opaque QTC force touch sensors promise to unlock a new generation of HMI possibilities for automotive designers and engineers. The slim, customizable sensor system can be integrated under a wide range of top surfaces such as plastics, rubbers, wood, leather, metals, and glass. They can also be deployed under flexible and rigid displays. With a wide force-sensing range and electronically-configurable force thresholds, QTC-based sensors eliminate false touches associated with capacitive sensors. The matrix sensors provide "3D Multi-Touch" -- the ability to track multiple touches for position (X, Y) and independent pressure (Z) readings for each touch simultaneously.
