Slate is reporting that car manufacturers are finally realizing that touch panels for controls in cars are terrible and dangerous.
Back in 2019, the US Navy, which had moved to touch screens for various interfaces for their ships, realized that analog controls are actually better and safer and are replacing touchscreens with analog controls.
Control surfaces for vehicles should be analog. Gauges can be screens- I’m not saying no screens. I’m just saying don’t put HVAC and other key controls on touchscreens.
