How does predictive touchscreen work?

The predictive touchscreen comes equipped with a Time of Flight (ToF) camera, which scans the fingers of the user as he or she moves to touch the screen. The ToF camera uses infrared light to detect movements in a 3D setup. The emitted light hits the user's hand and bounces back to the sensor of the infotainment system after detecting the hand's positioning. The artificial intelligence-powered system learns these movements and predicts the function or feature to the user.

As the driver does not require to touch the screen, the system does the work for the driver. It also reduces the workload, effort and duration of completing on-screen tasks for the user. Lesser distraction means, the driver can focus more on the road ahead, which reduces the risk of mishaps.
