Live from CES 2011: Visteon C-Beyond car’s thermal IR responds to you

By , Betanews

Rob Wray, from mp3Car, shows off the Visteon C-Beyond car. The center console has a thermal IR sensor that detects your hand location and opens and closes the console compartment automatically according to hand movement.

Adjustable ambient lighting can be changed based on the passenger’s mood. Motion sensing lighting can aid passengers in finding lost items at night as the floor can illuminate based on hand gestures. “Vertical Air Flow” eliminates the need for conventional HVAC vents on the dash. Individual zones of the vehicle are more easily climate controlled based around circular ceiling and floor modules. A Windows PC and Centrafuse front end controls all of the technology.
