Experience how Honda® and Tactual® are working together in cars and motorcycles to enable revolutionary body-pose-sensing for improved vehicle input and safety. PRISM-powered™ vehicle cockpits can see the driver’s body and hands in real-time 3D from every cockpit surface at up to 1,000Hz. Tactual PRISM™ increases the bond between riders and their smart vehicles by enabling safer input gestures that reduce cognitive load, broaden the set of tasks a driver or rider can safely perform, and provide a robust understanding of driver intent, height, weight, and posture.
At CES, Tactual® and Honda® will be showcasing a PRISM™ motorcycle handlebar proof-of-concept that senses a driver’s 3D hand pose in real-time. These smart handlebars enable the rider to control key functions of a motorcycle using the full expression of their hands in 3D while keeping those hands safely on the handlebar. The end result is improved safety by minimizing eye / hand movement associated with the use of discrete physical controls (i.e. buttons, toggles, etc.), while broadening the set of tasks that a rider can safely perform by giving a bike a human-level understanding of 3D hand movement.
