gestigon is proud to announce that they provide the gesture control software solution used in Audi’s booth at the CES ASIA in Shanghai, running May 25-27, 2015. gestigon and Audi have been working together to develop and be able to demonstrate state-of-the-art gesture control solutions. The first result of this cooperation is to, initially, provide an unique user experience for the rear seat passengers of Audi’s luxury car models enabling the user an easy, intuitive and relaxing way to interact with the multimedia device in front of them.
Gesture control automotive solutions have been shown at different conferences and events during the last years but often lacked a convincing user experience. Audi and gestigon believe that they have now solved a lot of challenges of the technology as well as the user interfaces and have created an appealing solution that could tease additional use cases and reach automotive’ market readiness soon. In this cooperation gestigon delivers the skeleton tracking software; Audi and other Audi partners provide the necessary hardware, integration, and user interface.
Moritz von Grotthuss, CEO of gestigon, says, “we are excited to have won AUDI AG as a partner to develop gesture control solutions for automotive. The application for the rear passengers is a first, appealing step into a multitude of use cases based on ‘active control’ to enable new, innovative and easy-to-use functionalities. With Audi’s unique positioning as one of the leading global premium manufacturers we have found a partner that shares our vision and excitement in regard of skeleton tracking- and gesture control for automotive in their broadest sense.”
Michael Schlittenbauer, Developer at AUDI AG confirms, „gestigon was able to provide a customized software solution for our targeted use case in the rear of the cabin. We are working on a number of concepts to integrate gesture control into our models and are looking forward to continue to explore the technology as well as use cases to enable a unique driving experience to our customers.”
