Interaction Sensors: Introduction

  • An interaction sensor is a semiconductor device which translates subtle hand movements into gesture controls required by electronic devices so that these devices can be transformed and made to function in a manner in which they are designed to
  • Interaction sensors are capable of tracking millimeter hand gestures at a high speed and accuracy and they can control electronic devices such as watches and phones, without the need for physical contact. This can eliminate the need for use of knobs, buttons, or switches in the surface of electronic products such as watches, phones, and radios.
  • With the help of interaction sensors, the user can run commands by using his/her face or hands without physically touching the device to be operated. For instance, in case of a smartphone with an interaction sensor, the user can control or operate the phone by means of hand gestures or face movements, without touching the phone screen. In automobiles, interaction sensors can be used by the driver to control the radio, the air-conditioner, and the global positioning system (GPS) in the car.
  • Over the last few years, with the rising popularity of the gesture technology among various consumer electronics industries, manufacturers of interactive sensors as well as gesture sensors have been focusing on R&D activities in order to introduce advanced interactive sensors in the market
