Touch switch has haptic feedback for clicks in cars

C&K Components has developed an automotive human machine interface (HMI) technology based on haptic feedback for ‘clickable’ touch sensing.

Designated the CLK series, the unpowered electromechanical device provides consistent, self-guided motion with uniform haptic feedback for automotive touch-sensing HMI applications.

Automotive HMIs that feature capacitive controls, such as touchpads or touchscreens, can integrate the CLK Series inside their architecture to make them ‘clickable’.

“By providing an energy-free tact switch solution that delivers ‘clickable’ functionality and excellent haptic feedback, our CLK Series offers a unique alternative to other HMI-integrated component concepts,” said Eric Grange, senior product manager at C&K Components.

The switches contain a patented mechanical structure interfaced with haptic elements, such as a tact switch, that complements a touch surface and allows for its motion.
