How Does BMW Gesture Control Work?
The BMW Gesture Control is accomplished by a little overhead camera that captures your hand movements over the infotainment area. This camera relays your hand movements in the area and converts it to control the function you initiated through your specific hand or finger gesture. Want to accept a phone call? Point your finger. Want to dismiss that phone call instead? Swipe your hand away. Need your music volume adjusted? Rotate your finger in the direction you desire. It’s simple and easy-to-use for top-of-the-line connectivity with your BMW. You can find the revolutionary BMW Gesture Control in vehicles such as the BMW 7 Series, BMW X5 and the BMW X7, so you can explore this technology all for yourself!
Why is BMW Gesture Control Important?
Why control your infotainment system with gestures when you could just lean over and press the buttons? Driving is full of distractions, distractions at fast speeds and with decisions that need to be made quickly, and demand the utmost of attention. BMW has consistently been at the forefront of safety technologies to make your drive less distracted, like Driver Assistant and CoPilot.
