Eggtronic capacitive technology has countless automotive applications. Capacitive layers could be used in cars to wirelessly connect and supply components and accessories, with a lot of advantages.

Capacitive layers are considerably thin and light, and can be easily embedded in the car frame, body, roof, floor, seats or doors with huge weight saving and flexibility. The capacitive layers could open a bidirectional data and power link with actuators, I/O, sensors and processors, thus connecting and supplying them wirelessly.
One of capacitive technology main features is the total positioning freedom, that allows to power and connect sensors and actuators just placing them close to the capacitive layer. It’s perfect to connect and supply sensors on moving and rotating parts, such as the steering wheel and tires. Easy integration, no wear and oxidation, no need for batteries, extremely low latency.


Capacitive technology also allows to seal sensors and remove connectors. External lighting system could be integrated to the car body without any cable, and the same could be done for cameras, LIDAR and parking sensors, air pressure or flow sensors. Hostile environments (mud, dust, oil, water) are not an issue anymore, and external elements could be sealed, preventing damages and wear from mechanical contact.
Layers can be embedded in interiors, arranged in dashboards, seatbacks and roofs. This way you can connect multiple displays ensuring simultaneous superspeed bandwidth, by simply putting them on the capacitive interiors, in a flexible and easily reconfigurable way. Capacitive layers could also control internal ambient lighting , buttons, touchpad sensors and gesture controls.
In today’s vehicles, seats are typically secured on a rail system that allows limited translation along the longitudinal axis of the vehicle only. Movements are limited by cables, and extra features come at the expense of extra cables. Capacitive technology applied to seats brings lots of advantages and enables a set of new functionalities and features that are nearly impossible to get with standard systems: arrangement freedom, swivel, no wires, no wear, data transfer, and much more. The straightforward implementation of the capacitive technology on seats consists in having the transmitting area along the rails and receiving plates on seats.

As for the seats rails, capacitive technology could be embedded in the whole car surface, allowing not only seats but virtually any cabin element to freely move everywhere while being powered and connected with the vehicle control units.
