In the latest generation of the BMW 7 Series, a system is used to control some vehicle functions with gestures. The Volkswagen Group at CES 2016 showed a similar concept on the e-Golf Touch, but much more advanced.
The innovative infotainment system is called the Modular Infotainment Toolkit and consists of a built-in 9.2 “center console with a display resolution of 1280 x 640 pixels. The system is equipped with software that, like smartphones, allows the user to customize the look of the home screen, giving the driver quick access to key features and applications. The screen also has a gesture control system and a voice activated with the phrase of the corresponding phrase.
In addition to the new infotainment system, e-Golf Touch also received inductive chargers for cordless mobile battery charging and also for rear-seat passengers.
Another system is also the system, which with the car speaker system amplifies the driver’s voice and sitting next to the passenger, thus facilitating communication with the people on the back couch. Thanks to that, even at higher speeds, you will not have to override engine noise and tire noise, while passengers on the back will be able to hear what you are saying.
The Volkswagen Car-Net ID system is also an interesting solution, allowing you to create your own driver profile, including seat, steering, air conditioning, suspension settings, etc., in short, for all options. This is a useful option when the car is used by several people, and Volkswagen promises that in the future the profile will be transferable between different vehicles of this brand.
The next innovation the German company has equipped with e-Golf Touch is Media Control 3.0. This solution allows you to pinch your tablet to car navigation and infotainment, providing a level of control. For example, a rear seat passenger will be able to enter an address for navigation. Of course, there is also a WiFi hotspot and cooperation with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
