Gesture provides a new design space for in-vehicle human-machine interaction. It could potentially mitigate emerging conflicts between the increasing functionality of today’s vehicles and the very limited space that is available for implementing these functions within the driver’s reach. However, because gesture requires manual input, it may cause unintended consequences for drivers rather than supporting concurrent driving tasks as it is meant to do. Therefore, we invited you to join us and find a way to bring this great way of interaction into our cars.
Linda Angell and Yu Zhang hosted a workshop at Automotive UI 2014 conference. The goal of this workshop was to start the conversation of how to use gesture interaction to improve driver experience. This blog will be used as information sharing platform for those who share the same passion of holistic HMI design.
