Toyoda Gosei is to exhibit at CES 2020 showcasing e-Rubber, a next-generation rubber which moves with electricity.

E-Rubber can function both as a soft and sensitive sensor as well as an actuator capable of gentle, human-like movements.

Its use in haptics devices can provide a more realistic experience by adding the sense of touch to images (sight) and sound (hearing) in augmented reality (AR), which is expected to grow in use with the spread of 5G wireless technology.

‘Venture into Innovation’ is one of the key pillars in Toyoda Gosei’s 2025 Business Plan, its medium and long-term business plan. The company is focusing efforts on the development of e-Rubber and other new technologies, taking advantage of the knowledge in rubber, plastics and other fields it has cultivated through development and production of automotive parts and LEDs.

In the automotive field, Toyoda Gosei’s next-generation steering wheels and airbags for autonomous driving cars can be seen in the near-future interior model MX191 exhibited at the Toyota Boshoku stand.
