FORCIOT, together with WEBASTO, have teamed up to manufacture high-tech sensor solution for measuring dynamic forces in WEBASTO Convertible Roof Systems in real-time, in a fast and cost-effective way

September 23rd, 2020

While opening and closing a convertible roof, the entire roof system is in constant motion. During this process different forces act on the roof and many variables such as temperature, dimensions, inner tensions and stretches make the evaluation or simulation of the real-time forces difficult. To build state-of-the-art convertible roof systems faster and more efficiently, it is important to measure forces in real-time. This is why Webasto, together with Forciot, have teamed up to manufacture high-tech sensor solution for measuring of dynamic forces in real-time, in a fast and cost-effective way.

Forciot sensor solution can easily be integrated in between the canopy – the flexible textile part of the convertible roof system. Forciot is using it’s patented stretchable electronics technology in the Webasto convertible roof force measurement solution.

“For Forciot this is exactly what we want to do, to develop and manufacture spearhead sensor solutions together with our fantastic global customers. We highly value this opportunity to cooperate with such a great company as Webasto Group that goes far with innovation.”, Says Tytti Julkunen, Forciot CMO & Chairman of the Board.

Webasto-Forciot sensor solution will be presented and demonstrated for the first time by both companies together at the Start-up Autobahn EXPO DAY at 24th of September in 2020 at 2PM UTC. The event will be organised online so all interested parties are welcome to join to hear and see the solution presentation.
