In this paper, the authors present a non-contact prototype interface designed for the operation of secondary controls in a vehicle. The current controls are replaced by a computer interface that is operated by the driver using pointing gestures and which is identified by a computer vision system. This vision system monitors the steering wheel area, thus detecting and tracking a driver's hands and subsequently identifying pointing gestures. The paper describes the prototype and the preliminary results from both the interface and the vision systems.
