The Development of Innovative Touch Interface Software for Industrial Applications
As a modern Human Machine Interface (HMI), touch-sensitive displays, so-called touch displays, offer new possibilities for the operation of equipment and machines in industrial applications. A successful interface design that enables intuitive use of complex and comprehensive functionality pays off in multiple ways. A well-thought-out operating concept not only enhances attractiveness via differentiation of products from competitors with sales-relevant effect. It also increases the flexibility for variants development and updates and reduces user training cost and operating errors for customers. As a consequence, there is a lot of pressure on manufacturers, product managers, designers and developers to develop products with such optimized touch interfaces.
