The interior of a car is a very important element. When we approach a car we always look how is finished (quality of implementation), if it incorporates certain elements (climate control, touch screen…) or if their controls are well placed. ergonomics is a section of the car brands take great care since the driver should be comfortable when handling these controls. In addition, its location must be very well studied as a bad placement could cause some unpleasant situation for the driver.

In a matter of a few years the vehicles have been passed to incorporate dashboards that seemed cut from the same pattern to be original and colourful. manufacturers are investing large amounts of money in its development, and now that new technologies (and touch screens) have come to stay should have to take care of a lot more these details. Some brands, such as Peugeot with i-Cockpit, are leading the way that must carry the dashboards of the cars of the future.


The signature of luxury japanese Acura, took to the Los Angeles Auto Show its new Precision Cockpit Concept. With this scorecard the firm ahead of how it will be from now on the interior of their models. In this case, following the path marked by both manufacturers the following manufacturer that has presented how it will be in the dashboard of their cars is BMW. The signature of the helix with its new Holo Active Touch want us to forget the buttons and let’s move our hands in front of cameras and sensors to execute the actions that we want to carry out.

Holo Active Touch is the latest evolution of the system of gestural control that already equips the current 7-Series BMW. With this system the driver can control various functions of the infotainment system through hand movements. Its operation is based on a camera located in the center console that can be configured to perform different actions and even allows you to press virtual buttons.

Its official presentation on the part of BMW will be in the year 2017 at the CES in las Vegas. Until we can test how it works will have to be satisfied with this video and image to see how it works.
