Gesture Controlled Infotainment System & E-mirror

When look closer into it, one could be amazed about the substantial number of things a driver could do from an infotainment system. From CD players and navigation systems to video players, Bluetooth/WiFi connectivity, carputers, call answering and even front view photoshooting (if connected to a dashboard camera system), it is easy to understand why the automotive industry is in need of more advanced control methods to balance infotainment functionality and driving safety.
