Touch enabled Graphical User Interface

This demo showcases a touch screen enabled GUI written from the scratch, which is lightweight, responsive and can be adapted for use in any kind of application.The GUI is completely proprietary and implements the good things found in a touch interface.

We are excited to put up this demo finally. This project has been 'Work in Progress' for last several months and will continue to be under development for a few more months. We have an early Alpha testing going on now. This Touch enabled Graphical User Interface designed for a standard Monochrome Graphic LCD module with resistive touch screen available in market.

The software runs on a '8-bit microcontroller' @16 MHz. We have some neatly optimized software built on it. In this alpha release we have standard GUI controls like buttons, text boxes etc that are demoed in the video.

The 'idea' behind this project was to build a generic touch enabled user interface that is easy to use, low cost and it can be adapted as the primary user interface for any kind of small and medium sized control applications. It can be adapted for control panels for consumer electronic products, industrial systems, CNC systems or just any system that requires a reasonably complex set of parameters to be managed on a user interface.

It can also be used in complex remote controls of remote controlled systems.

The software is written modular enough to be adapted for any other LCD module as well with some effort. We are also working on a similar idea that uses a TFT Color LCD along with touchscreen. It will be however a few more months before we can put up a demo on this blog.

We are open to any enquiries to adapt this system for your control panel needs for products and we provide both design and manufacturing support for systems designed by us. Feel free to contact with further enquiries on this concept using this e-mail id.
