Pressure sensing seating

It’s believed many adults spend around 67 hours a week sitting down, which increases with age. From the automotive and aviation industries, to the medical and entertainment sectors, smart pressure sensing seating helps experts understand what’s happening when we sit, and opens opportunities for novel product or treatment options. TG0’s durable technology can measure forces, track activity and recognise human poses and movement patterns without the need of additional setups.  

Measuring enhanced interaction modes

●     Body footprint

●     Balance and stability

●     Alignment

●     Gesture detection

●     Activity tracking

TG0 technology can turn any conductive polymeric materials into a smart sensing surface programmed to describe material deformation at high resolutions. Smart seating can track body footprint, balance and stability, alignment, gestures and other activities. The sensor is durable, shock resistant, and affordable to manufacture. It’s also coupled with TG0 APIs, which are capable of delivering accurate posture and activity tracking in real time. Haptics can be added to the interaction, providing more immersion to the user.  

Technology meets comfort

●     No sacrificing comfort for functionality

●     Full styling flexibility: on any surface finish, including easy clean and waterproof options

●     Any surface curvature

●     Pliable, soft, lightweight sensing materials

●     WiFi & Bluetooth enabled

This patented polymer based sensor technology offers a disruptive method of manufacturing large-sized sensor arrays. Traditionally matrix-based piezoresistive technologies have been too limited and expensive for this use case, but TG0 pressure-mapping sensor technology can be applied to large-sized, thin and flexible sensor sheets, which are affordable and scalable in mass production. These pliable, lightweight sensing materials can be coupled with any surface finish, including easy clean and waterproof options, and any surface curvature.

Streamlined process

●     Build smarter from prototype to product

●     Rapid prototyping opportunities

●     Shape and size scalability

●     Fewer sensors for increased performance and easier assembly

●     Highest sensor coverage on the market.

TG0’s multi-disciplinary team can move from prototype to product in a matter of weeks. The shape and size of the solution is entirely bespoke to a customer’s requirements, and assembly is made easier with fewer sensors. This does not impact performance – TG0 has the highest sensor coverage on the market.

In summary, TG0 patented polymer based sensor technology offers a disruptive method of manufacturing large-sized sensor arrays. These are in turn accompanied by a set of software solutions capable of delivering real-time posture and activity tracking.
