SANTA CLARA, Calif. & STOCKHOLM--March 11, 2013: Neonode Inc., , the optical touch technology company, today announces that it is cooperating with Volvo Cars to incorporate Neonode's Multisensing technology into Volvo's new and connected infotainment device - the Sensus Connected Touch. The Sensus Connected Touch is a complete 7-inch touch panel operating on Google Android.

"The fact that Volvo has chosen to implement Neonode's Multisensing technology in to their new system is a testament to the high quality and performance of our technology. The Volvo Sensus Connected Touch is a result of very progressive thinking, and we are very honored to deliver an integral part to this advanced system. The new Sensus Connected Touch signals a much-anticipated modernization of in-car infotainment systems, where Neonode's Multisensing solution provides a premium user experience and smooth navigation. We look forward to seeing the system fully integrated into new Volvo cars this year," says Thomas Eriksson, CEO at Neonode.

Neonode's MultiSensing touch solution for the automotive industry is very adaptable when it comes to design and operation, and is developed to fulfill strict safety regulations. The technology provides a 100% transparent, no-glare interface that is undisturbed by electrical interference or other light sources such as sunlight. Neonode's Multisensing technology is based on infrared light, enabling touch by any type of object such as gloved fingers, car-keys, styluses or ordinary pens. Other benefits are built-in diagnostics that provide a self-reliant system alerting its operational status to other critical on-board systems.

The Sensus Connected Touch was pre-viewed at CES in Las Vegas and at the MWC in Barcelona, and launched last week at the Geneva Motor Show 2013.
