BMW TO DEMO NO-SCREEN HOLOACTIVE TOUCH AT CES 2017

The future of cars and mobility is always a fascinating topic. While “clean, green” fuel systems and powertrains have been the most recent hot topics of conversation, another is gaining momentum; interior technology. The BMW Group will again try to address this question from its own perspective when the company shows off the HoloActive Touch system at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 in Las Vegas.

BMW HoloActive Touch basically acts like a virtual touch screen where the driver interacts with the car using hand gestures, but does not actually touch any surface at all. So in essence it’s like Head-Up Display, BMW Gesture Control and direct touch screen combined into one function. BMW envisions a future where physical screens will not exist anymore. Of course the implications of such a system are enormous, not least of all the ability to control the infotainment system and ConnectedDrive functions for example, from any point inside the car, thus negating the need to place actual physical screens in certain fixed positions.
