Jaguar Land Rover teams up with University of Cambridge to develop an AI-based contactless touchscreen tech

Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover has tied up with the University of Cambridge to develop a new touchscreen technology that allows users to no longer need to press buttons on the screen. It has been developed to improve vehicle safety, and in the wake of the COVID-19 epidemic, keep a check on the transmission of bacteria and viruses.

The patented technology is being called Predictive Touch and works with artificial intelligence to predict where the driver will point their finger as soon as they move toward the screen. A gesture tracker then uses vision-based or radio frequency-based sensors to estimate in real-time environmental conditions with relevant information such as user profiles, interface design, and data available from other sensors, such as the eye-eye tracker is. The user’s intended target on the screen.

JLR says lab-testing and on-road tests have shown that a predictive technology can reduce a driver’s touchscreen interaction effort and time by up to 50 percent. This technique can also be helpful on poor road surfaces, where operation makes a touchscreen more difficult.

This software-based technology has reached a high readiness level and can be seamlessly integrated into existing touchscreens and interactive displays via updates, so long as the purchase of sensor data is required for AI to work efficiently Do not have the means to do it. This predictive tactile technology is an initiative under the Destination Zero Vision of Jaguar Land Rover. It aims to make vehicles safer and their surroundings healthier. Other technologies towards this goal such as driver attention monitor, PM2.5 particulate filter and engine noise cancellation have been deployed in Jaguar Land Rover cars.
