(PresseBox) (Maidenhead, UK, ) As part of the electronic displays conference, at the forthcoming Embedded World trade fair in Nuremburg, Germany, Hitachi Display Products Group (DPG) will be presenting a technical paper outlining touch-panel technologies and their suitability for industrial display applications.  Graphical user interfaces are already present in many industrial applications and the consideration and understanding of how touch-panel technology can be used to enhance and improve the user interface and resulting user experience has now become essential.
