Candera, a provider of HMI design tools, Next System, an expert in customized haptic hardware, and DATA MODUL, a leading partner for display technologies, have been cooperating on the development of an innovative HMI system, supporting intuitive touch feedback technology. Featuring different use cases in application fields like industry, nautics, medicine and many more, the system also includes a haptic pin pad, that supports person with visual impairment.
Following several studies on the hierarchy of human senses, touch is often named as one of the most important ones after visual and auditory impulses. Therefore, it is not surprising, that not only our physical but also the artificial world can be enriched from an enhanced input of touch stimuli. The incorporation of haptics and touch feedback technology into displays and touch screens is no future trend, it has already found its way into many application fields like automotive, industry or medicine. Adding these intuitive operating concepts to static devices transforms standard user interface (UI) systems into immersive and living HMI experiences.
Based on these insights, Candera GmbH, Next System, and DATA MODUL merged their expertise in order to create a modern Multi-Scene-HMI system with intuitive and haptic touchscreen support. The result is a highly perceptive UI that combines the best out of 2 worlds – perfect HMI design and enhanced haptic technologies.
