Course: Gesture control and capacitive touchscreen in the motor vehicle

This training system makes it possible for you to gain a profound understanding of modern operating concepts of the latest motor vehicles and to learn the necessary skills to perform diagnostics on these systems. You will learn how capacitive and resistive-type touchscreens work and the different ways they are operated. Capacitive switches are very closely related to capacitive touchscreens and are also included in the training material used in this training system. But the highlight of this system is the integrated gesture control system which you will become very familiar with in the practical experiments. The entire package is rounded off with a host of diagnostic assignments which includes switching on fully automated fault simulations integrated into the training system.  The trainee must work through the faults on his or her own using a diagnostics strategy in order to be able to isolate the malfunction.
