Recently, industrial HMI has undergone significant technological developments. Wide-screen and multi-touch innovations will not only change the face of traditional HMIs but also enable HMIs to be used in an increasingly diverse range of markets. Through this webcast participants will learn about the benefits and possible issues of the next generation HMIs; emerging opportunities and how they'll affect different parts of the industry. Ideas will be presented from a leading editor, an HMI platform provider, and an end user so that you can get a clear picture of what the new face of industrial HMI looks like and how you can take advantage of the new developments.

Learning objectives for this webcast are to understand:

  • From smart phones to multi-touch HMI
  • Benefits and possible issues of multi-touch panels
  • How multi-touch panels will impact HMI platform (SW/HW) providers, system integrators and end users
  • Consideration factors for designing the right HMI solution: New application scenario, operator experience, new graphical user interface, innovative panel platforms
  • What HMI solutions will be available in the future
