A new contactless ‘touchscreen’ technology has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover.
Developed in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, the contactless touchscreen will help keep drivers’ eyes on the road and reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses in a post COVID-19 world.
The patented technology, known as “predictive touch”, uses artificial intelligence and sensors to predict a user’s intended target on the touchscreen – whether that’s satellite navigation, temperature controls or entertainment settings – without touching a button.
A gesture tracker uses vision-based or radio frequency-based sensors, with data available from other sensors, such as an eye-gaze tracker, to infer the user’s intent in real time.
Jaguar Land Rover’s vehicles have been aiding in the fight against COVID-19 globally. Read all about it here!
