Mercedes-Benz Shows Off Gesture-Controlled Dashboard

We’re always on the lookout for new human-machine interface developments, since design engineers may someday be able to interact with their models via new technologies (gesture, touchscreen, even brainwaves); sometimes these new HMIs show promise in new designs as well.

Mercedes-Benz, for instance, is toying with using gesture controls to operate its vehicles. The company’s Dynamic & Intuitive Control Experience (DICE), unveiled at CES, uses proximity sensors (along with some augmented reality technology) to allow drivers to control dashboard functions by moving their hands.

I’m sure you can already imagine the potential drawbacks of this approach, especially for, shall we say, particularly animated drivers. Or anyone with children.

You can view a video of Auto Blog’s Damon Lavrinc testing out DICE below:
