March 13, 2017, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Touch Display Research

Today France-based Valeo just announced it acquired 100% shares of gestigon, a German start up that is specialize in touchless HMI (human machine interface). The terms is not disclosed.

Currently, there are also rumors about Intel is planning to buy Israel-based Mobileye for $14 billion, according to Reuters, and Jerusalem Post. (Update: These rumors became reality on March 13th, Intel announced to acquire Mobile eye for $15 billion.)

The automotive industry’s adoption of new technologies has accelerated in the past couples of years. More and more touch screens and displays are integrated in the automobiles for better infotainment, intuitive control, and safety. ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant Systems) and touchless human-machine-interaction have saved lives. Touch Display Research forecasts the overall automotive touch, display, ADAS and touchless HMI market will grow from $15 billion in 2017, to $60 billion in 2023.

In the recently published “Automotive touch, display, ADAS and touchless HMI 2016 report,” Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzes automotive touch screen, display, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System), and touchless human-machine-interaction (HMI).
