  • Publication number: 20150212584
    Abstract: An in-vehicle input device includes a mechanism to detect the approach direction of a finger and tilt a touch panel in the right-left direction. If an operation input part representing at least one of the forearm and the hand of an occupant moves closer to the touch panel and enters a second region that is closer to the occupant, the operation input part is detected by a detection sensor. An ECU moves the touch panel so that the touch panel turns toward the direction of the operation input part. If the operation input part further moves closer to the touch panel and enters a first region, the ECU stops the movement of the touch panel.
