HMI in car interior

Catalyst for progress

At first glance, you can’t spot any sign of the technology in the interior. That's because it is hidden behind the latest Shy Tech design and homogeneous surfaces. The first touch or gesture reveals what functionality the vehicle has to offer. HMI is made possible thanks to the patent pending PolyTC® sensors from KURZ subsidiary PolyIC. Produced efficiently on rolls, these sensors are thinner than a human hair. They are also suitable for curved geometries, with a metal mesh structure that makes them especially flexible.
