BMW looks to add gesture controlAt CES, BMW demonstrated its gesture control feature for its in-car infotainment system. In the future, drivers will be able to change the radio volume, start navigation or answer a call with the wave of a hand or by pointing a finger.
[MUSIC] I can enhance the volume or put it down. Wouldn't it be nice if we can tell the user what she wants if we tell the system what we want to do with single easy hand movements? So I can accept the phone call with. Pointing into the air. Hello, you have dialed my number. Or if I don't want to accept it, I can shoo the caller away, like that. These gestures are really only available in the situation when the phone call is coming in. So when I'm doing like this now or. Point into the air when there's no phone call, nothing will happen. The moment we have four different gestures, and the two fingers into the air like that, the system will start a navigation to your home. Can rise the volume up and down. We have this gesture space beside the steering wheel, so it's very comfortable to interact here, and we have a camera over here on the roof. And this is detecting hand poses and hand movements. Since Minority Report has been in, in the cinema, the people want to interact via gestures. And it's also common in the consumer electronic market. And it's really fast and comfortable. [MUSIC]
