The car HUD displays real-time driving data coupled with road signs and lane departure alerts as it continuously monitors the set safety parameters. The touch-less commands through their integrated gesture-control and voice-recognition modules are able to give a hands-free seamless experience without distractions of any kind.
Users can dictate their response, attend/reject calls using simple hand motions or ask the unit to read these via a voice assist. The microphone picks up the voice from the user and directs it to a voice-recognition unit than then processes the voice. Operations are performed once the particular command key words are identified. Commands are recognised and interpreted using the data dictionary to perform actions, which can be as simple as saying Accept or Reject (the call). The UI is equally responsive.
