BMW are responsible for preparing the presentation of a new technology for the control of various parameters of their vehicles. At CES 2017 held within a few days the company will announce its technology HoloActive Touch.
This system is an iteration of AirTouch who presented last year, and the fundamental difference is that instead of having a touch screen as such that we presented is a "virtual touchscreen" shaped hologram also provides an answer touch operations we are doing it.
Do we need holograms on cars?
This option will be part of its architecture BMW Connected, and here the manufacturer indicates that "for the first time, various functions can be controlled without having any physical contact with materials, but the technology is enabling the visible and tangible interaction between the driver and the vehicle found in conventional touch screens.
The technology used by BMW has certain similarities with HUD systems that project images on the windshield, but this time those images and that interface "floats" in the air. A camera is responsible for detecting the movement of our hand and interaction with the screen, and from there the tactile response is offered not yet know how it works in detail.
The idea seems original, but it will be at CES when technology to check whether or not travel and if there becomes more of a dangerous distraction that a "espectacularizador" element of the driving experience. That is precisely what we need in a last means of transportation there is to prevail is security.
