Voice recognition, gesture control, eye tracking, proximity touch, motion sensors, and short-range wireless interaction are gaining momentum:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 OS added two touchless HMI features: voice control and facial recognition.
  • Apple recently acquired two touchless HMI companies.
  • Facebook joined the touchless HMI wagon in 2014 by acquiring Oculus. In 2015, Facebook/Oculus acquired another two touchless HMI companies.
  • Augmented reality and virtual reality devices “love” touchless HMI sensors, since they rely on touchless HMI sensors for sensory inputs to function smoothly and deliver the cool imagery and features.
  • Google announced radar-based gesture control project Soli in 2015.

“Voice-command is penetrating rapidly into TV, mobile phone, wearable and automotive applications. Gesture-control and motion sensors are a ‘must’ for augmented reality and virtual reality devices. Touch Display Research forecasts that the touchless HMI market will grow rapidly in the next several years. There are many opportunities for OEMs, ODMs, semiconductor companies, and software companies,” said Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, CEO and Principal Analyst at Touch Display Research.
