British brand Jaguar’s working on a new technology, the raising and lowering of windows in the doors by touching them. This was told the car portal Autoblog Jaguar design director Ian Callum at the Auto Show in Detroit.
According to Callum, the exact date of the appearance of the system on a production car is still unknown, but “they know exactly how to do it.” Means a technology that the glass will fall after a finger touches a particular portion thereon. The general principle of operation is understandable, but what to do when the glass is completely down, whether there will be traditional buttons on the doors, and how to ensure that your fingers are not left little attractive prints on the glass – all of this is not clear yet. Callum noticed, however, that the safety is not affected. When reporters asked him to explain the mechanism of such glasses, the designer said that this can not yet tell.
Earlier Jaguar already equips its model systems operating from touching. For example, the lighting of the driver’s head and opening the glove box. Judging by the fact that Ian Callum said that it is necessary to lower the window to touch the “definition” of its parts, Jaguar learned from the touch glove box on a sedan XF, which opens when the passengers touched his knees. Subsequently, this omission was corrected.
