Title
(EN) FUNCTIONAL LEATHER COMPONENT AND METHOD OF MAKING THE SAME
(FR) COMPOSANT EN CUIR FONCTIONNEL ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN) A functional vehicle component and related methods include a functional leather assembly fixed over a vehicle component. The functional leather assembly includes a leather sheet, a flexible electronic circuit arranged on a first surface of the leather sheet that faces away from the vehicle component, and a pigmented coating arranged over the circuit. The circuit optionally includes one or more electronic components, such as a piezoelectric switch that can be actuated to make or break a conductive path in the circuit. The piezoelectric switch provides a haptic signal that indicates the actuation of the piezoelectric switch. The entire functional leather assembly, including the circuit, may be embossed to provide an embossed pattern to an exposed surface of the functional leather assembly.
(FR) L'invention concerne un composant de véhicule fonctionnel et des procédés associés comprenant un ensemble en cuir fonctionnel fixé sur un composant de véhicule. L'ensemble en cuir fonctionnel selon l'invention comprend une feuille de cuir, un circuit électronique souple disposé sur une première surface de la feuille de cuir tournée à l'opposé du composant de véhicule, ainsi qu'un revêtement pigmenté disposé sur le circuit. Le circuit comprend facultativement au moins un composant électronique, tels qu'un commutateur piézoélectrique pouvant être actionné pour établir ou couper un trajet conducteur dans le circuit. Le commutateur piézoélectrique fournit un signal haptique qui indique l'actionnement du commutateur piézoélectrique. L'intégralité de l'ensemble en cuir fonctionnel, y compris le circuit, peut être gaufré pour conférer un motif gaufré à une surface découverte de l'ensemble en cuir fonctionnel.
