Ident Technology secures 7.1 million Euros funding to launch 3D gesture control chip
“Our Z-Sense technology is all about making the user experience natural, intuitive, simple and fun”, said Dr. Roland Aubauer, Chief Technology Officer and speaker of the board of IDENT. “With our proximity technology already in production we have decided to take our innovations further and develop our own GestIC chip for three-dimensional (3D) gesture control.”
The GestIC, designed as a highly integrated system-on-chip (SoC), is aimed at the fast-growing 3D gesture control market. It addresses a broad range of consumer electronics devices, such as tablet computers or mobile phones, mobile computers or game controllers. The company’s patented and proprietary e-field based technology allows real-time tracking of free space hand or finger movements in front of a device or display. The same SoC enables user interfaces ranging from simple one-dimensional (1D) touch detection over sophisticated 3D gesture recognition to dynamic positional data of the user’s hand in free space.
