Alps Electric’s Futuristic vehicle interface with predictive & gesture input system

“Alps Electric has developed a next-generation vehicle interface, created using its own sensors and input devices. The interface consists of a Multi-Modal Commander, allowing for direct and gesture based input, as well as a Haptic Shifter which changes settings according to the situation.
The Multimodal Commander is a hemispherical device with a capacitive sensor and a near-infrared sensor. It can be operated intuitively not only by touch, but also by moving your hand around it. It also supports gesture input, using the space at the top of the device.”
