A touchscreen is an electronic visual display that can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area. The term generally refers to touching the display of the device with a finger or hand. Touchscreens can also sense other passive objects, such as a stylus and are common in devices such as game consoles, all-in-one computers, tablet computers, and smartphones.
The Demonstration Centre illustrates how Quick Response (QR) codes and Near Field Communication (NFC) tags can provide an interactive capability to access information such as timetables, price lists and appointment information. The touchscreen also includes capabilities to administer bookings, payments or requests for information.
