While opening and closing a convertible roof system, today’s passengers must continuously press a button. Additionally, any form of remote operation is limited to the direct vicinity of the vehicle. This restriction is intended to protect against injury. However, passengers are used to smart control units, and are looking for a solution to improve the convertible experience. Together with Australian startup Imagine Intelligent Materials, Webasto has developed an anti-pitch system for convertible roof systems. The textile is covered with a graphene layer, which acts like a super sensor and can stop the opening or closing movement immediately by a single touch. This system will detect any touch on the textile material of the canopy and inner lining, providing additional protection to the passengers and persons standing by.
