Any semi-rigid material — metal, glass, wood, stone, ceramic, plastic, or a combination of these materials, can sense touch with InfiniTouch Force Panel Technology (www.forcepaneltechnology.com) (patent-pending). It is a reliable, durable touch panel that can withstand continuous use, abuse, weather elements, harsh, and unsecure environments,
The panel is different from existing bending wave and projected capacitive ruggedized touch screens. It offers force-based sensed touch sensing, which measures the force of a user’s touch, rather than using a complex, indirect measurement. The location and force of the touch is quickly and accurately determined by placing four force sensors near the corners of the touch surface. Relatively simple mathematical equations determine the X-Y location of the touch and the corresponding z-axis force.
Additonally, any semi-rigid surface, including metal, glass, wood, stone, ceramic, composite, plastic, or a combination of these materials can become sensitive to touch.
It resists impacts of more than 1,400 g. The panel is capable of dynamic self-calibration, scalable to any size, proven to 1.2 meters, operable when covered with ice, water, dust, or debris, and more.
