About

tacterion is a high-tech sensor company based in Munich/Germany. We developed a unique tactile sensor technology called sensorskin: A sensory silicone layer for making curved, soft and complex objects touch and pressure sensitive. It is stretchable, sensitive and tough. With this technology we are at the forefront of the tremendously growing market of stretchable electronics. The patented sensor technology was originally developed at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to give robots the sense of touch. We work together with world-leading companies from different industries, enabling their future innovations. By implementing sensorskin, our customers create the next generation of intuitive Human-Machine-Interfaces and truly responsive products. Using the combination of our unique hard- and software as well as design know-how, engineers and interface designers realize a more natural and individual user experience than ever before - driven by haptics. With our help, world-known companies will create human-centred products that completely revolutionize way we interact with technology. E.g. the direct collaborating of workers and robots will be made even more intuitive than today, using out technology. But sensorskin also increases efficiency in connected industrial applications through the monitoring of flexible components and parts. The data our sensors generate enables e.g. predictive maintenance scenarios that were not possible before. Target markets are Human-Machine-Interaction in Consumer Electronics (Virtual Reality, Gaming and more), Robotics, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), MedTech and Automotive.
