With the presentation of the unique innovative sensor system B-Neo at the CES 2021, B-Horizon is entering the next phase of strategic expansion and establishes a new business unit.
As a next generation sensor system, B-Neo is able to measure multiple parameters at the same time, in different application areas, for example car seats, smart textiles and footwear, haptic gaming suits, and even diapers. The sensors are extremely flat yet resilient, and can be printed directly on flexible materials, making the production process efficient and economic. The data collected by the sensors are processed with support of artificial intelligence, and provided to the user’s smartphone, smartwatch, or a larger screen. The benefits for the consumer are manifold: the application in car seats allows occupant identification and monitoring, to support automated driving of level 3 and beyond, or to optimize the activation characteristics of the airbags. In sports and gaming, the user receives a range of valuable analyses including tips that help him evaluate and optimize his activity or workout – and can even prevent injuries.
Within the growing market of smart living products, it is our vision with B-Neo, to offer a technology that improves people’s lifestyle, making it smarter, safer, and richer.
