Presentation Summary

TactoTek Injection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE) is a manufacturing method that changes the way electronic parts are designed and built. It is a solution that integrates printed electronics (circuitry, sensors, and antennas) and discrete electronic components (LEDs, ICs, etc.) inside of thin 3D plastic structures.
Benefits of IMSE for Energy Independent Electric Vehicles are obvious: it significantly reduces the thickness and weight of parts, thus maximizing the usable interior volume and lightweighting vehicle mass. Other benefits include excellent touch and antenna performance, simplified vehicle integration and reduced total cost of ownership.
