Hands On Detection

Project: November 2019 – now (ongoing)


The HOD system is a capacitive measuring system to detect the drivers touch state at the steering wheel to give input to the car (e.g. for automated accelerating, braking and steering in traffic jams on highways). Its safety goal is not to send defectively a wrong touch state.
