Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept interior

Finally we have more new info on the interior cabin of the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept. Its design managed to make a lot of the ones present at the North American International Motor Show curious and now we will know exactly why. AutoWeek even called the model the Best Concept of the show.

Its cockpit features fully functioning eye-tracking and gesture-recognition controls for telephone, audio, navigation and temperature. In fact, all these help the driver use more controls without having to take his eyes off the road. If the model has too many features it can lead to distracted driving. This is a top-shelf safety issue for governments around the world and Hyundai really wants to develop safer cars and also to lead when it comes to safety innovation. In the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept, a driver presses and holds down a button on the back of the steering wheel, causing four icons to appear at the bottom of the windshield in a heads-up display. Then, a sensor in the steering wheel tracks the eye movements of the driver as they select one of the icons by simply looking at it and releasing the button. The next step is when the driver places his hands in front of the dashboard, without touching it, and rotates it back and forth. There is a sensor in the roof-liner that picks up this movement and then adjusts cabin temperature.

On the inside of the Hyundai HCD-14 GenesisCoupe Concept we can see the no-touch control system. The icons appear at the bottom of the windshield in front of the driver and are activated by eye-tracking software triggered by the eye movement of the driver. A button on the back of the steering wheel activates the icons that appear in the heads-up display on the windscreen, but we already told you about this. We have to admit the technology Hyundai specialists used is very advanced, exciting and will amaze a lot of people.
