In modern cars, more and more switches and buttons are being replaced by touch screens. Often they have more distraction and fingerprints remain on the glossy surface of the displays. Fortunately, Jaguar Land Rover engineers found a solution - developed a non-contact touch screen.
This technology is better known as predictive touch. It uses artificial intelligence and sensors that are responsible for determining the purpose of use on the screen - whether it be changing the temperature inside a car, satellite navigation or setting up a media system. The innovative system was created in collaboration with engineers from the University of Cambridge.
Road and laboratory tests have proven that the technology can reduce driver interaction time with the touchscreen by 50% and limit the spread of viruses and bacteria.
