Neonode Inc. (NASDAQ: NEON) and EPICNPOC have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to deliver a multimodal HMI development platform for automotive OEMs and tier-one suppliers that combines contactless touch input with graphical user interfaces, script recognition, voice interfaces, gesture sensing, audio and lighting for use in vehicle cockpits.

Neonode’s patented contactless touch technology is now integrated into EPICNPOC’s catalog of plug-n-play components and offered in both product and service solutions, in particular into EPICNPOC’s BOWL® platform.

BOWL is an experience development platform for project leaders, which combines a set of functional software, hardware, and tools. The platform allows users to easily design, develop, validate and test new cockpit and smart product experiences. BOWL is now available with contactless touch combined with an extensible set of displays, user recognition, individual audio, script recognition, lighting and open interfaces.

The contactless touch capabilities are powered by Neonode’s zForce® technology, which uses invisible infrared light to detect touch, in-air motion of user hands or objects over any surface, such as wood, glass or plastic. The optical sensors are robust to electrical noise and other electrically conducted interferences, and intelligently calibrate to ambient light in order to ensure the system will work in all light conditions.

Neonode is also making its MultiSensing® technology available to EPICNPOC and their customers. MultiSensing is a camera-based technology for scene analysis, which for example can be used for driver and in-cabin monitoring in vehicles and for other 3D sensing tasks.

With the integration of Neonode’s technology, BOWL users now have the ability to transform any material into a smart interactive surface, providing intelligent and safe interactions for many applications in the automotive, smart home, retail, and smart furniture domains.

Bertrand Stelandre, CEO EPICNPOC says “The integration of Neonode’s contactless touch technology into the BOWL eco-system is a must-have for creating phygitalproducts. Our customers can now easily and quickly transform any physical object into a smart surface.”

Dr Urban Forssell, CEO Neonode says “Out collaboration with EPICNPOC opens up new market opportunities for us and we see great potential in the combination of their offerings and our zForce and MultiSensing technologies.”
