Investment in Disruptive Technology Innovations Aimed at Reducing Driver Distraction Gaining Ground

Automotive manufacturers, especially carmakers, are providing a variety of infotainment and other electronic features which drivers and passengers may operate. Nonetheless, an increasing number of functioning features within the vehicle pose the risk of driver distraction.

According to studies, visual and manual distractions are at the forefront of the reasons of driver distraction. As manufacturers and product development engineers work to design functionality features that need the least amount of driver attention, gesture detection systems based on various sensors and 3D tracking technologies continue to fall short of reaching maximum efficiency.

Revolutionary technologies are being developed in the automobile gesture recognition sector, with the goal of reducing driving attention and improving driver control and comfort at a low cost. Such innovations are likely to have an impact on the growth trajectory of the automotive gesture recognition market in the future years.
