"Intellitouch" is the name Toyota will apparently use to refer to a new electronic control scheme it is developing. That's according to Car and Driver, which has spotted the name in a new Toyota trademark application. According to the submission, the name refers to "electronic touch sensitive controllers, sold as an integral part of motor vehicles."

C/D speculates that for Toyota to bother developing a brand name, there must be more to the new gadgets than just touchscreen navigation. In fact, the magazine thinks Toyota is gearing up for Intellitouch to compete with Cadillac's Cue and Ford's MyFordTouch and their capacitive touch switchgear. The control setup could also be similar to the gesture-based touchpad systems already offered by Audi and shortly, by BMW.

Another Toyota trademark filing is for "EBIN," a wireless charging system for personal electronics. While inductive chargers have been around for a while, several automakers are rushing to include them in upcoming models. General Motors recently trademarked the name, "Dockspot" for its version.

        Toyota is slow because they don't want to be like ford and end up with a screwed up system. My Ford Touch has been nothing but issues. We will see if the recent upgrade will fix that. Toyota is finally breaking out of the shell. Give it time. They are going to well in regards to technology. As it is Japan is one of the leading nations in regard to technology. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/07/ford-myford-touch-upgrade_n_1079419.html

      I doubt this is going to happen. A pool products company by the Name of Pentair Water has that name copyrighted. Is for a Interface system for controlling a pool system via touch screen devices like tablets, Android and iOS. Too similar of a thing....but we'll see. Pentair is like the GM of pool products.

        There is a line of commercial touch screens called Intellitouch as well (used for cash registers, etc). Seems hard to believe it isn't trademarked yet.

      I haven't used Cadillac's Cue, but I have used MyFordTouch. I refuse to buy a car with a touch screen for the controls. They are as stupid as automatic seat belts.
