-- Earlier this year Mercedes Benz unveiled its own experimental DICE (Dynamic & Intuitive Control experience) system at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The system allows drivers to perform basic functions in their car using only hand gestures. Many experts believe that this type of system is the next logical step for electronic car accessories and predict that operating car audio systems, telephones and climate control systems will soon be operated with gestures. Following on from touch screen systems, voice controls and central control switches, news of the next step in car electronics is set to be welcomed by companies such as NP Autoparts who pride themselves on offering the latest accessories on the market.
Audio specialists Harman are also working on integrating gesture recognition technology into future in car entertainment systems, with experts currently building a catalogue of gestures based on studies of human behaviour. The gestures must adhere to a strict code to avoid being classed as driver distraction there the movements used to control car accessories must be similar to those they already use when operating electronic car features. Experts believe that gesture recognition technology in cars will be seen within the next two to three years with many companies already working on how the technology will be best integrated into modern vehicles to avoid causing safety issues. With audio equipment and in-car entertainment accessories becoming more and more advanced, gesture recognition is set to be a massive step for those looking to make their mark in the industry.
