Next generation stretchable multisolution for safe working
FORCIOT® GRIP is a HMI solution, which brings additional safety and more functionality.
GRIP combines several functionalities into one multisolution to bring advanced grip detection, levels of force, and now also as new functionality heating, for enhanced safety and user experience.
- Detecting grip force
- Multiple sensing zones
- Measuring gentle touches to firm grip force accurately
- Stretchable heating element
- Seamless temperature control
- Thin solution
- Light weight
- Less layers
- Less electronics
- Heater element
- Software & ECU interface
As an innovative new multisolution FORCIOT® GRIP reduces costs by combining heater element and capacitive sensing system for grip detection into one multisolution.
GRIP is a unique wrapped handlebar control panel for electrical engine-assisted handling of heavy trolleys, manual forklifts, lawn movers, etc. The solution enables users working with heavy loads and on non-smooth grounds inside and outside, to use smaller machines instead of large and more expensive machines.
FORCIOT® GRIP reduces cost and complexity by combining functionalities and components into one unique multisolution. Cost savings are created through less layers and electronics, in addition to a simplified assembly process and supply chain.
ENHANCED MOBILITY, SAFETY AND COMFORT WITH HMI HANDLEBAR
Forciot® GRIP handlebar solution enables users working with heavy loads and on non-smooth grounds inside and outside, to use smaller machines instead of large and more expensive machines. Grip detecting and handling assistance:
- Pushing/ pulling with force sensing
- Turning with force sensing
- Using only one hand giving more flexibility
- Additional function buttons in the same structure
Advanced solution structure and architecture
Printed and stretchable electronics combined with advanced algorithms, GRIP revolutionizes control panel solutions by providing reliable data in all conditions with multiple sensing zones, allowing design freedom to easily integrate into any surface, size, and shape, regardless of the surface material.
Accurate measurement creates reliable data. As a unique and important safety feature grip is detected even when the driver wears gloves, and no false detection signals are generated by presence of moisture or humidity. GRIP is care-free and sustainable solution with no mechanical parts. Materials are durable and solution can be IP-rated according to the product requirements.
