JLR exploring the use of haptics in future vehicles
Haptic technology developer Ultrahaptics is working with Jaguar Land Rover in the investigation of a mid air touch system for its Predictive Infotainment Screen.
The work is intended to help drivers keep their eyes on the road, rather than on the technology in their cars. Using the Ultrahaptics solution, the driver’s hand can be located and tracked as it moves across a field of interaction. The user can feel virtual objects and control switches and buttons, giving the ability to control them in mid-air and receive feedback to confirm their action.
Steve Cliffe, Ultrahaptics’ CEO, said: “We are enormously proud to have been chosen to support this safety critical technology programme. Our innovation will be truly disruptive to the way we interface with the technology within our vehicles.”
