When the IPhone was first introduced to the public it changed the entire landscape of what and how people use their phones. One of the most noticeable advances was in the touch screen interface that had not been used on any previous phone models and today 3.5 Billion people now have these devices. This interface has become second nature to everyone and is an expected feature on every hand held device. Contrary to the IPhone interface most industrial machines have followed a utilitarian approach to the user interface but that age is quickly coming to an end. With companies looking for the next best thing to set their machine apart from the competition it is only natural that user interaction is a large part of that growth. To bring machines into the next evolution, companies like B&R have been developing a user interface that is both more functional and aesthetically pleasing to the operator and customers. In the next few paragraphs you will learn how B&R’s forward thinking approach to user interface is changing the expectation in the industrial market.
