Global Gesture Recognition Market in Automotive Sector 2014-2018
About Gesture Recognition Market in Automotive Sector
Gesture recognition is the ability of a device to identify and respond to different gestures of an individual. Gesture recognition technology can be 2D-based or 3D-based. It uses a camera-enabled device that beams an invisible infrared light onto the individual, which is reflected back to the camera and onto a gesture recognition IC. The IC, with the help of gesture recognition software, creates depth maps of the images received and responds appropriately to the movements. Thus, no physical contact is required between individuals and devices. Gesture recognition helps in providing a higher level of safety in automotives. The major applications of gesture recognition in automotives include management of audio and video systems, dashboards, and other controls.

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Gesture Recognition Market in the Automotive Sector 2014-2018
TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Gesture Recognition Market in the Automotive Sector: CogniVue Corp., Harman International Industries Inc., Microsoft Corp. and SoftKinetic Inc.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Gestsure Technologies, Intel, Microchip Technology, Omek Interactive, Pebbles, PointGrab, PrimeSense, Pyreos, Qualcomm and Thalmic Labs.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Increase in the number of partnerships between automobile manufacturers and gesture recognition solution vendors is one of the key trends upcoming in this market. Automobile manufacturers such as Ford, Toyota, and Mercedes have developed partnerships with gesture recognition vendors such as Microsoft. Intel and Harman are also entering the market along with leading automobile manufacturers to provide gesture recognition capabilities in automobiles.”
According to the report, increased demand for cost-effective gesture recognition solutions is one the major market drivers. Gesture recognition solutions are available at an affordable cost because they need only software and a camera with a sensor for the recognition process.
Further, the report states that the non-standardization of gestures is a serious challenge for the market. For instance, a subtle movement of the user's hand could activate a function he did not intend to perform. Therefore, a certain level of standardization is required to ensure the accuracy of gesture recognition in different applications.
