Impact of touch technology on HMI displays

Technical Q&A with Lee Skrypchuk, Human Machine Interface Technical Specialist at Jaguar Land Rover

DA: What impact has touch technology had on HMI displays?

Lee Skrypchuk: Touch technology is a very important part of interface development, touch screen elements are becoming an integral part of the display system to the point where I can see them merging into 1 seamless component (currently they are 2).

People expect touch screen even when it is not there and this causes disappointment to the consumer. A number of different technologies will be used in the future but one significant challenge that automotive has to resolve is that of haptic feedback - to give the user knowledge that they have triggered a positive action, this is really in its infancy in automotive and thus I expect this will develop in the near future.
