I wouldn't trust waving my hands in the air like I just don't care to be safe. Waving your arms around would effect your driving, even if its one arm just to adjust the radio, your body becomes off balance and you already start to need effort put into keeping the car straight.
Umm, gesture control...in VEHICLES?! Did anyone stop to consider how dangerous it is to be waving around in the air when you're driving? Either someone will think you mean for them to go ahead of you by waving them along, or, heaven forbid, some idiot at Google decides to try to steer a car with gesture control.
Google, save your money and try to build something useful instead!
I don't know EC. This seems like a good alternative to direct control access of secondary systems in the car, so folks can keep more focused on the road.

@CodyIrwin, @ECouts: The gesture control would come into play only when the body part (usually a hand) is near the physical control for which control is desired, say the radio volume button. Therefore, wildly waving hands or hands visible to other drivers is nothing to be concerned about.
Imagine if the sensors included Kinect 2. I can imagine things like being able to play along with the music by playing virtual drums by patting your legs or beat-boxing with your mouth, etc. A world of possibilities.
