HALIOS® Gesture

Elmos patented HALIOS® principle (High Ambient Light Independent Optical System) enables touchless control by detecting gestures and proximity. Simply swiping and sliding through menus leads to more intuitive HMI. The function principle is based on comparing the light beam, which is reflected by the object to be detected with a reference light beam for most robust object detection. As a result, the device offers best immunity against ambient light, improved sensitivity and automatic calibration over vehicle lifetime.
