auto loading the driver using hardware probing

I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on 3 different tablets. All other hardware is same except the
touch controller. There are three different types of touch controllers,


These drivers conflicts when loaded all together, so I have to load it one
at a time. I can enable only one module at a time by keeping its entry in /etc/modules.
I have all these modules in /lib/modules/.....

Is there any way that kernel can auto-load the specific module on sepcific hardware detection?
For example, if the kernel finds ft5x touch controller, then can it loads ft5x_ts module ??
