Did you know that while opening and closing a convertible, the entire roof system is in constant motion? During this process different forces act on the roof and many variables such as temperature, dimensions, inner tensions and stretches make the evaluation or simulation of the real-time forces very complex. To build cutting-edge convertible roof systems faster and more efficiently, the exact knowledge of these forces in real-time could avoid testing cycles and reengineering of failures. This is why Webasto, together with Forciot, have teamed up to manufacture high-tech sensors for the visualization of dynamic forces in real-time, in a fast and cost-effective way. The Forciot sensors can be easily integrated in between the canopy – the flexible textile part of the convertible roof system. This project will enable engineers to react quickly during the developing cycles, if over-proportional concentration of force at a certain point is detected.
