About us

tacterion is a high-tech startup based in Munich and was founded in 2015 as a spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). tacterion develops and markets a unique sensor technology called sensorskin. Based on our sensorskin technology, plyon® is our first product platform. It combines a highly flexible sensory layer that measures interaction and pressure on any surface with algorithms to understand how users interact with it. This patented technology was originally developed for robotics and provides the sense of touch for products and machines. tacterion’s sensitive surface layers enable the next generation of truly interactive and responsive products.

Quality management for us is not a series of word documents and excel charts, but way to continuously share our knowledge and keep learning. Expect in-depth discussions with our engineers and designers.
