Multi-touch all-point sensing in automotive environment
Author: Aditya Kaul
The images created in Sci-Fi movies tend to push the limits of reality, such as when Tom Cruise uses a multi-touch screen to browse through information in the movie Minority Report. Capacitive sensing technology, however, has changed the way we interact with devices. We no longer simple push buttons or throw switches. Rather, we can touch, slide, and pinch the data itself on a touchscreen to interact with it. The far-off interfaces of the movies are not such science fiction anymore. In fact, they are already being adapted and designed into a variety of applications including our cars.
