Visteon Arms Drivers with Gestures to Control Nearly Everything Onboard
When a new technology is introduced in a vehicle cockpit, it usually requires a new set of controls. That means drivers must divert their attention from the road to manage yet another touch screen option or group of buttons. However, a recent advancement in gesture technology offers a seemingly magical way to control systems – from media players and ventilation to windows and glove boxes – in a manner that allows drivers to keep their eyes steadily on the road.
Time of Flight Gesture Technology
Visteon’s time of flight gesture camera is located in the headliner of the vehicle and embodies a near-infrared system so it’s not visible to the human eye. The camera detects a 3-D area in the center-front seat, meaning that touch is not required to adjust the center console, windows, lights and more – all that’s needed is a gesture. This technology reduces driver distraction and increases user experience.
