• This patented technology was developed with engineers at the University of Cambridge.
  • It uses sensors to predict the user’s intended target on the touchscreen.
  • According to JLR, the technology can be easily incorporated into existing touchscreens as well.

Jaguar Land Rover has developed a new contactless touchscreen to reduce the transmission of bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19.

The patented ‘predictive touch’ technology was developed with engineers at the University of Cambridge and uses sensors to predict the user’s intended target on the touchscreen, so that they don’t have to actually touch buttons and risk transmitting viruses.

JLR claims the innovation, which is part of its Destination Zero project to improve vehicle cleanness and safety, also cuts drivers’ touchscreen use time by up to 50 percent, reducing the time drivers look away from…
