Gesture Control

Type of interface control using hand positions and movements and relying on either a camera or time-of-flight sensor. Main uses include hands-free infotainment control. Early developers of this technology include SoftKinetic, acquired by Sony in 2017.


A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. It is typically generated in vector format and contains multiple layers of detail depending on what needs to be displayed.

Graphics Processing Unit

A specialised electronic circuit designed to accelerate image and graphics processing. GPUs excel at parallel processing. As many sensors in ADAS and autonomous technologies use photonic sensors, i.e. camera, LiDAR, RADAR – these are optimally processed by graphics processors.
