Realized via an array of ultrasonic speakers, gesture interaction and spatial displays profit from becoming more physical and tactile to the user.
We worked on leveraging this emerging technology in the vehicle to allow the driver to have a more intuitive experience and eyes-free control over the Infotainment System.
Finding the right area where gestures are recognized, feeling the feedback of a gesture and the acknowledgment of the system, allows the driver to interact in a more precise, less distracting and more satisfactory way with the vehicle.
I worked closely with our technology partner to create a new generation of mid-air tactile and gesture HMI concepts for the vehicle and consumer products. I presented the first prototype concept at CES 2016 generating positive media attention from The Verge.
I successively worked on the next-generation standalone prototype to showcase potential automotive UX and applications.
I then worked on the creation of a final prototype, fully integrated in a vehicle and presented at CES2017, which also generate positive media from Extreme Tech.
