Make the smooth touch screen feel like button, dials, and sliders with haptics.

The automotive entertainment center is moving to the car’s touchscreen. With it, users are required to navigate through their media using a small dial or are relegated to interacting with a static touchscreen. 

Changing the radio station just isn’t the same if you can’t feel the turn of the dial. With haptics, auto brands can have their programmable digital touchscreen and the feel of a dial, slider or buttons to make it easier for users to get to their music.  

Haptics can add button-edge detection and various textures to screen navigation. This way, the user can adjust volume and tuning using a horizontal slider with detents. Haptics that accurately replicates the physical experience improves quality, ease-of-use and car operations.
