Jaguar Land Rover announced the development of an innovative touchscreen display for in-car infotainment applications.
Specialists from the University of Cambridge (Great Britain) participated in the creation of the novelty. The panel uses predictive non-contact interaction technology that does not require physical contact with the display.
Various sensors are responsible for tracking hand movements – optical and radio frequency. Special algorithms based on artificial intelligence determine which element the motorist wants to touch and execute the appropriate command.
The solution has a number of advantages over traditional touch screens. First of all, traffic safety is increased, and the total interaction time with the panel is reduced by 50%. The fact is that in the process of driving, especially on uneven roads, drivers have to “aim” to press one button or another or try to give a command several times. Jaguar Land Rover’s new system addresses these issues.
In addition, the screen of the on-board media system ceases to be a breeding ground for bacteria that are carried on the hands of users. Finally, fingerprints do not accumulate on the panel.
