Jaguar Land Rover to introduce contactless touchscreen technology

Jaguar Land Rover is set to introduce new technology that could help reduce distractions for the driver.

The new contactless touchscreen technology uses sensors and artificial intelligence to predict what you will touch on the screen ahead of time and execute that particular function without you touching it.

Jaguar Land Rover says it reduces effort and time by 50% compared with a regular touchscreen as well as playing its part in helping reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria.

The patented technology, known as ‘predictive touch’, has been developed in collaboration with engineers from the University of Cambridge. An in-built gesture tracker uses vision-based or frequency-based radio sensors to compile data which, combined with data from an eye-gaze tracker and user profile, will adapt to the user’s intent in real time.

Making the drive less distracting is part of Jaguar Land Rover’s Destination Zero vision which aims for a safer and environment-friendly driving experience.
