Solves the problems of multiple touchscreen users passing COVID-19 or other viruses and bacteria from person to person
From more than 6 cm above the touch surface, the aXiom IC enables Air Dwell, Air Tap, Air Swipe and Air Spin gesture recognition. These gestures may be used to replace functions such as button presses, scrolling through a series of screens, and actuating graduated controls such as a virtual rotary knob for controlling audio volume or fan speed. This Touchless User Interface technology is supported by gesture recognition software running in the host system’s controller or processor. The range of air gestures can easily be configured and extended by system designers using a development tool supplied by TouchNetix. Normal touchscreen operation is implemented seamlessly alongside the new touchless controls.
