Join this on-demand webinar to learn about how novel ams capacitive sensing technology provides more reliable, safer solution for hands-on detection.

Watch our on-demand webinar about capacitive sensing technology empowering hands-on detection

United Nations Regulation 79 requires hands-on detection (HoD) in all new cars with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). Already adopted by the EU for new production vehicles from 1 April 2021, this becomes key to reliability and safety for ADAS. By implementing ams novel capacitive sensors in HoD applications which cannot be ‘fooled’, car manufacturers attain the highest standards of safety, with a simple, single-component solution, at a comparatively low system cost. The webinar will explain why alongside comparable technologies.

Regardless of the level of driver assistance system your car uses, driving safety is always the most important.

Safety is always the most important thing for driver whatever level driving system your car is with, in order to effectively improve the driving safety, many ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) related products have come to the automotive market already. Hands On/Off Detection (HOD) is one kind of ADAS, which is requested in L1-L4 autonomous driving system and supports the ADAS requirement. Currently there are several of methods to implement HOD like capacitive sensing, camera monitoring, and pressure sensing etc. However ams provides a high accuracy measurement sensor based on impendence measurement principle by using I and Q demodulation technology.
Welcome to join us on discussion.
