LEXUS Remote Touch
The LEXUS navigation system using a remote operating device (remote touch) that uses haptic technology, which operates the distant screen by recreating the sense of touch. Safety while driving is increased by the display seen from a distance and the operation close at hand. The driver can accurately operate the device with the support of stress response based on haptic technology. Ease of use was achieved by the shape of the controlling device, which naturally fits the palm of one’s hand, and the switches that align with finger positions. This product’s operability was built in collaboration with developers from TOYOTA Motors and ALPS Electric.
