Robot for testing the lifetime of human-machine interfaces

Keypads and touchscreens make a wide range of different devices easy and intuitive to operate. A robot system developed by Fraunhofer IPA now allows device manufacturers to realistically simulate such loading in order to determine how durable their devices are. Typical applications of various devices can be simulated and automatically tested for any desired time duration.
