Solutions for Intelligent User Concepts

The more intelligent the products become, the smarter the individual would like to operate it.  This is one reason why user concepts change so quickly. A key factor is the experience customers have from their smartphones which today set the standards also for innovative solutions for home appliances: Touch displays, switch buttons, contact-free gesture controls and many more. Interfaces for operating functions are one of our innovative focus topics, where we jointly realize new ideas together with you to make the future tangible.

This is an example of SCHOTT Smart Touch, which enables touch-sensitive buttons on glass surfaces. It shows a close shot of an white “on” icon on a black surface.
This picture shows a hand touching a display. The latter is a touch display, which enables inspirations and ideas for innovative design and operating concepts.
Controls and displays are seamlessly integrated into the design. Visual effects, such as lighting, or haptics help to guide the user, and interactions are made possible through touch or even gestures. Symbols are only displayed when they are needed. The goal is to make the operation as easy and as intuitive as possible.

When it comes to innovative ideas, glass is the material of choice for user interfaces due to its scratch resistance not to mention that its electric and chemical properties are especially good. And glass is proven – typical for SCHOTT – thanks to its functionality options and numerous design possibilities.
A forefinger is sliding through a longish indentation, which is located on a black surface. This surface is a touch display and the indentation is a haptic control element. The picture is a example for SCHOTT Smart Touch.

SCHOTT® Smart Touch

Cavities on the surface of a glass panel provide haptic feedback for intuitive detection of touch sensors behind glass. In addition: electric sensors are perfectly protected against water and dirt. Several shapes and sizes allow individual designs.

Typical applications
