Manage all aspects of a car without touching virtually no physical control: this is the future of human-machine according to BMW, that at CES 2017 in Las Vegas shows – under the banner of ecological brand BMW i – the Future Vision Interaction . A prototype that dramatically expands the potential of gesture control, already seen on the recent 7 Series.
The technology makes the “minimal” 2017 BMW Vision
Coated with high-resolution display, the German concept of the dashboard shows a different look from any production car on the market today, and brings about a new level the concept of aesthetic simplicity. Fully configurable screens display information and content that changes as needed, and that can also be controlled by voice.
In detail, the main display panoramic measure 21 “, and is flanked by the three-dimensional graphics that takes the place of the traditional instrument cluster. Third organ system of visual information, the now unavoidable head-up display.
The new interface between driver and medium is made dall’AirTouch, gesture recognition system which represents the step technological succcessivo compared to the Gesture Control Series 7: here, the sensors are able to “capture” the hand movements also in the sense of depth, making possible the control of the wide screen according to a logic identical to that of a touch screen, but without the need for any contact.
In fact, the last legacy of physical controls in the cockpit of Vision Future Interaction remains the mode switch to driving wheel sull’esile two races, which allows you to choose between Pure Drive, Assist and Auto Mode, adjusting the degree of intervention driver assistance systems, on a scale that comes to lap the full autonomy.
