Simulation is the Key to Integrating Touch Sensors in your Next Vehicle

The automotive industry is undergoing a massive change. This traditionally slow-moving industry is pushed towards innovative products with significantly shorter development cycles than in the past. The main driving forces of this change are the latest emerging technologies, such as e-mobility and connectivity.

As a result, automotive interior designers and companies are eager to follow this trend and they are striving to give a facelift to the outdated interior of modern vehicles. The trend is to replace gauges with screens, and mechanical sliders and buttons with touch sensors (even combining the two into touch screens).

Simulation-Driven Design and Manufacturing

“Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.”  – Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947)  Today, when I see a white car on the road, I can hardly tell what the exact color … Read More

Multiphysics Analysis of an Aircraft Radome

A variety of critical performance metrics can be predicted via simulation, including boresight error, transmission loss, bird-strike damage, and deflection under aerodynamic load. When it comes to aircraft design, engineers must meet standard requirements and consider every scenario. Would the … Read More
