Force sensing solution for grip detection and movement assistance
FORCIOT® GRIP is an HMI Solution for electrical engine-assisted intralogistics vehicles, equipment, and other work and industrial machinery.
It is a thin and stretchable wrapped solution that is seamlessly integrated into for example handlebars, control panels, and steering wheels turning them into intelligent HMI controllers.
- Multiple sensing zones (>10)
- Measuring gentle touches to firm grip
- Intuitive interaction
- Accurate real-time sensing
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, pallet stackers, pallet jacks, 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.
