Tekscan's patented sensor technology can assist with automotive seat comfort studies, measuring brake pad pressure distribution, tire tread patterns, wiper blade force profiles, and much more.

  • Map interface pressure
    • Provides key information including total force, peak pressures, and center of force
  • A better understanding of surface behavior
    • Design validation - verify structural integrity of lighter, fuel efficient, cost saving components
  • Application specific sensors and software analysis tools:
    • Tire, wiper, door seal, impact, engine gasket, brake, seat, and ergonomics
  • Research & design, quality control, and manufacturing tool
    • Improve yields
    • Identify failure modes
    • Reduce downtime
    • Assist in machine set-up
    • Vendor validation
    • FEA validation
