Pilot ID: Explained
With Pilot ID you can distinguish between users of a touchscreen or touch surface within a multi-user environment.
Within an automotive cockpit environment, Pilot ID technology reports to the GUI controller additional information about which user is operating the touchscreen. This information can be utilized to enable safety enhancing guiding features and restrictions on the driver and passenger's ability to operate and use the touchscreen whilst driving.
This feature can be also enabled as a mid-life upgrade to the system, should new regulatory requirements be introduced to limit the driver’s ability to operate the touchscreen.
Outside of the automotive environment, Pilot ID can also be used where user privacy or security is important, or where an administrator must control part of a display at the same time as another user.
