Title: CONTROL APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING OPERATION OF A COMPONENT
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present invention provide a control apparatus (400, 500, 600) for controlling operation of a component; a control unit; component; a vehicle and a method for operation of the control apparatus (400, 500, 600). The control apparatus (400, 500, 600) comprises a user-interaction surface visible to a user of the apparatus, a first pressure sensing means (202, 402, 502, 602) horizontally adjacent to a gesture sensing means (204, 404). The first pressure sensing means (202, 402, 502, 602) is adapted to detect a first press input and the gesture sensing means (204, 404) is adapted to detect a gesture input, such that movement of a finger to provide the first press input and the gesture input are combinable to form a single command for controlling operation of the component.
