Despite the recent developments in gesture-driven technologies facilitating multi-touch and mid-air gesture recognition, there has been little formal user evaluation and analysis of these systems for in-vehicle interfaces. Mid-air gesture-based interfaces can provide a less cumbersome in-vehicle interface for safer driving. Recent developments in gesture-driven technologies have facilitated multi-touch and mid-air gesture recognition. However, for in-vehicle interfaces, research needs to be conducted on the most efficient gesture vocabulary for performing secondary tasks. Following the Interaction Design process user requirements need to be explored, followed by evaluation of characteristics and functions. Then, the outcomes of user evaluation study can be used to develop an efficient in-vehicle gestural interface. Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).
