To make the operation of touch elements even safer and more effective for motorists – whose primary task is, after all, to keep their eyes on the road – Continental is focusing on tactile (i.e. haptic) feedback from touch-sensitive surfaces. For example, slight counter-pressure from the display on the driver’s finger indicates that an operating step has been performed successfully, making it unnecessary for the driver to look at the screen again.

Target: haptic feedback when you expect to have haptic feedback, and stiff when you expect it to be stiff!
