Densitron, a creator of ARM and x86 based Human Machine Controllers, with over 45 years of display application experiences in LCD and OLED, today announced that Martyn Gates has been appointed as Global Director of Product Development and joins the board as an executive member, effective immediately.
Gates is a broadcast industry and product development specialist with 36 years of commercial, academic, and research experience and will lead Densitron’s global product development strategy with a particular focus on Haptics and Human Machine Interaction.

A highly experienced consultant, Gates has analysed the impact of the introduction of new technologies on business processes and people.
