Touchpads Put In-Car Entertainment at Your Fingertips

April 19, 2012

A tiny touchpad in the armrest or steering wheel of future vehicles could enable drivers to more easily communicate with a car's audio, radio, phone, or navigation system, thus reducing driver distraction.

Developed by TRW Automotive, the new touchpad employs capacitive sensors that allow drivers to use a finger to jot script onto a screen as small as an inch square. By writing a few letters on the screen, drivers could access the navigation system, a radio station, a certain song on an iPod, or numerous other in-car features.
