Flex and Aito Partner to Accelerate Innovation in Automotive Human Machine Interfaces

SAN JOSE, CA -- Flex and Aito partner to enhance the automotive user experience by embedding touch sensors with button-like tactile feedback into automotive applications such as overhead consoles, steering wheel controls and other vehicle interior applications.

Aito's proprietary piezo-based technology provides haptic feedback to a user's fingertip, making smooth surfaces feel as if they were embedded with physical buttons, knobs, shapes, edges or textures. By eliminating the need for physical buttons, this technology provides unparalleled design freedom, enabling tactile controls to be seamlessly integrated with high quality materials such as wood, leather or metal. Additionally, the technology significantly reduces weight and space requirements in automotive cabin design, reducing the required thickness of the sensor rack to under 0.4 millimeters.
