Hyundai HCD-14 concept car caught a lot of attention at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this month. If HCD-14’s exterior is an evolutionary marker of Hyundai’s design, its interior is truly revolutionary.
HCD-14’s cockpit showcases fully functioning eye-tracking and gesture-recognition controls for telephone, audio, temperature and navigation. These enable a driver to make use any of these controls without taking their eyes off the road and search about the dashboard for buttons and manual controls.
The interior of HCD-14 shows no-touch control systems. Icons appear at the bottom of the windshield in front of the driver and are activated by eye-tracking software triggered by the driver’s eye movements.
Once an icon is selected by looking at it, the driver moves and rotates their hand in front of the dash to adjust temperature, volume and other controls. These hand movements are picked up by a sensor in the roofliner.
A button on the back of the steering wheel activates the icons (climate control, radio, etc.) that appear in the heads-up display on the windshield. The driver selects an icon by looking at it and then releasing the button on the steering wheel.
