NEW PRODUCTS TO MAKE LIFE BETTER

New products are the result of research, resources (both human and technological) and reflection. At CTT Group we are equipped to take on the most demanding challenges in terms of product development, and we've had many successes that are currently part of your everyday life.

We work in close collaboration with industry, business, government procurement departments and academia because we understand how each plays a vital role in the conception, design, creation, manufacturing and ultimately the performance of a new product.

If you are considering developing a new product with a scope to conquer new markets, we can assist you in every step of the way. Our technical and scientific experts understand the need to innovate in order to remain competitive and they are motivated by the challenges you face in your industry.

EXAMPLES OF NEW PRODUCTS DEVELOPED AT CTT GROUP

The Intelligent Seat Belt
Conductive textile sensors are embedded in webbing used to manufacture seat belts. These sensors are able to detect whether a seat belt is fastened and can then transmit a wireless signal to the Cabin Management System to indicate which passenger is not buckled.

The intelligent seat belt can be retrofitted into any aircraft.  It is lightweight and is a solution for public transportation vehicles in general.   Visit: www.belt-tech.com
