According to a recent study from market research firm Global Market Insights, Automotive HMI (Human-Machine Interface) technology is proliferating at such a rapid pace that today it can enable real-time communication between driver and the vehicle system without distraction, even while driving the vehicle.
Add to it, recent developments in gesture recognition systems have also brought a change in conventional dashboard layout from static to a more dynamic adaptable design. On grounds of this widespread acclaim, numerous automotive gesture recognition market giants have been trying their hands out on improvising the technology.
In this regard, 3D gesture recognition concept is taking the industry space by storm. Supported by multiple image sensors, this highly specific user interface systems allegedly are capable of generating data from any distance, which represent three dimensional spaces all across the device. A few years back, in 2015, Visteon, one of the formidable players in automotive gesture recognition industry, grabbed the headlines with its first showcase of a 3D gesture recognition enabled multipurpose vehicle at Beijing motor show.
Equipped with time-of-flight camera technology and image processing algorithm, the groundbreaking system effectively recognizes certain predefined hand movements to perform different operations. Reportedly, the system could also distinguish between passenger and driver hand gestures, in addition to allowing customizable hand gestures.
As reported by the company officials, integrating this mid-air haptic feedback control with gesture recognition technology can result in more intuitive and safer control in automotive infotainment. Pertaining to these unique features, the STRATOS platform is undeniably on its way to set a new standard in automotive gesture recognition industry.
While elaborating on the latest trends pervading in automotive gesture recognition market, the hefty investments by the renowned automakers like BMW, Volkswagen, Audi in this technology is worth quoting. In this regard Volkswagen’s premium class concept car I.D. VIZZION, sent out waves of anticipation in automotive gesture recognition market. An absolute state-of-the art version of its predecessor, I.D. family, this next generation avant-garde saloon is claimed to be fully operated by gesture and voice control. Since the vehicle is fully integrated by gesture recognition systems, there would be no driver seat, dash panel, and steering wheels, cite sources.
