The integration of more and more functionality into the human machine interface (HMI) of vehicles increases the complexity of device handling. Thus optimal use of different human sensory channels is an approach to simplify the interaction with in-car devices. This way the user convenience increases as much as distraction may decrease. In this paper a videobased realtime hand gesture recognition system for in-car use is presented. It was developed in course of extensive usability studies. In
