Lexus debuts a new version of their Lexus Remote Touch interface with the new Lexus RC Coupe. This is the third version of driver input system that Lexus has implemented in their cars. They started with a touch screen interface and moved on to Lexus Remote Touch – a joystick-like controller which you use to control a pointer on the screen like a mouse.

The second generation Lexus Remote Touch uses a touchpad accompanied by four hardware buttons – home, menu, up and down. The video shows a driver operating the touchpad, although it isn’t very descriptive in the sense that it doesn’t show what the driver’s inputs do to the infotainment screen. It seems you can move your finger around to control a pointer as well as perform swipe actions.
