HONOR Magic6 Pro AI feature: Remotely control your car by just looking at your phone

An AI-based eye-tracking functionality that enables you to remotely control your car? HONOR surely loves innovation

The HONOR Magic6 Pro introduces cutting-edge AI-based eye-tracking functionality, powered by Eyeware’s GazeSense software and seamlessly integrated with the formidable Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. This innovation allows users to execute tasks effortlessly – from selecting destinations on a map to zooming in – simply by directing their gaze towards the phone.

The versatility of this feature extends beyond conventional smartphone applications, as demonstrated by a groundbreaking proof of concept devised by James Brighton, a prominent UK-based automotive engineering expert.

In this demonstration, the HONOR Magic6 Pro, enhanced by artificial intelligence, collaborates with a 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor nestled in the distinctive pill-shaped hole in the screen. This combination empowers users to enjoy hands-free control over specific car functions by focusing on the phone’s screen.

Functions such as starting or stopping the engine, and even maneuvering the car forward or backward, can be initiated with a mere 2-3 seconds of gaze at the relevant menu item on the phone. While steering is not within the purview of this feature, its utility becomes apparent in scenarios where the user is not physically inside the car, offering a practical solution for navigating tight parking spaces.

It’s worth noting that, as of now, the eye-tracking technology is exclusively available in China, and the presented prototype is an early iteration. However, envision the myriad possibilities that such technology holds – beyond automotive applications, this innovation paves the way for the smartphone to seamlessly control various functions in your car without necessitating physical interaction or voice commands.

This prototype serves as just one glimpse into the vast potential of AI integration, and HONOR is poised to delve deeper into this subject. An upcoming AI Panel Discussion at the MWC, scheduled for Monday, February 26 at 17:00 CET, will feature insights from industry experts representing Qualcomm and the GSMA, promising a more profound exploration of the transformative impact of AI in the realm of smartphones and beyond.
