The $US1,600 Raku Navi AVIC-MRZ009 will be rolled out in Japan next week with its Air Gesture Sensor that uses an infra-red system to detect and track the motion of the driver’s hand. It doesn’t limit the functionality of the navigation unit’s touchscreen, though, which can still be operated with taps for accessing all of its functionality. The new gesture system is just meant to be a safer alternative for accessing more common functions without requiring the driver to take their eyes off the road. [Pioneer via Tech-On!]
