An HMI, also known as a human interface, is a display that allows a user to control and monitor his or her machine.A common example of an HMI is an ATM machine, coffee machine, or beauty machine on which the user can interact with the machine using screens and buttons.
Today, through this guide, we will introduce:
Introduction to HMI - human interface
HMI with STONE
Why use STONE HMI
Easy to use
Various TFT LCD touch screen sizes from 3.5 inches, 4.3 inches, 5 inches, 5.6 inches, 5.7 inches, 7 inches, 8 inches, 10.1 inches, 10.4 inches, 12.1 inches, 15.1 inches, there are many models and options for the same size. With so many HMI displays, you are sure to find the best display for microcontroller projects like STM, RAM, Arduino and Raspberry Pi.。
Need help or technical help with your HMI project?Don't worry, STONE can provide technical support.
Optional UART interface type (RS232/RS485/TTL)
Optional touch control type (resistive/capacitive/non-touch)

STONE HMI Display Project idea
Here are some STONE HMI Display project ideas to get you started!
Use the STONE LCD module to create a refrigerator control
Reference: create refrigerator controls
Our fridge is not possible with any of the man-machine interface, but if there is a refrigerator with human-machine interface, let users can through the touch screen operation, control of refrigerator on the lower cooling efficiency, display the current the temperature inside the refrigerator, display the current indoor and outdoor temperature, and some feedback on the usage of refrigerator (days running, filter life, etc.), so, it is very convenient and practical for users.
