What’s Happening

Planet logo

Humanetics unites its group to focus on digital, safety and sensor technologies

Humanetics' desire to focus safety and technology innovation has led to a simplification of the Humanetics structure and a commitment to drive our capabilities through three divisions that will focus on Digital, Safety and Sensor Technology.

The Benefit of Custom-Made Force Sensors in the Medical Industry

The function of many drug-delivery, therapeutic, and medical device systems often relies on a change in force. Learn about how this change can be initiated by either the patient or can be automatically changed by the device itself.

The Sensors Used In Fly-By-Wire And All-Electric Aircraft

A growing interest in finding ways either to replace heavily polluting hydrocarbon-based fuels or to increase their efficiency.
