IR touchscreens have a grid-like array of infrared LEDs and photodetectors (phototransistors or sensors) at the edge of the device. This grid array is continuously emitting infrared light. Human eyes are not able to see it. When you touch the surface, it creates a disturbance in this light. After that device analyzes to determine the point where the disturbance occurred; thus, allowing it to identify the precise point of contact.
IR touchscreen strength and durability are superior to other touchscreens. We found that when our smartphones fallen down and its screen get damaged even with gorilla glass. IR touchscreens will be an alternative to solve this problem. Whereas IR touchscreen technology is still in progress. Currently, few manufacturers are providing this kind of screen but these are not for our smartphones. So in the upcoming days, we will find this invention in our smartphones, TV, etc. It will make a big change in the future.
Thanks for reading. See you soon with another exploration!
