Neonode in Sweden is to supply its Touch Sensor Modules (TSMs) to MiTAC Computing Technology for a 32in touch-free self-service kiosk set to ship globally.
The contactless solution has been extensively tested and is now ready for wider promotion to MCT’s global customer base. The demand for contact-free kiosks has bnoomed as a result of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic to avoid cross infection.
MCT, part of MiTAC Holdings, is a fully integrated kiosk provider that has been looking for technology that brings safety to the kiosk interaction. MCT has successfully developed a non-contact touch solution for large-screen kiosks during the second quarter of 2021 as a retrofit using multiple TSMs that are working in concert to enable contactless touch on larger kiosk displays.
The Neonode Touch Sensor Module is a laser light-based touch sensor based on light reflections that can be integrated and used in various applications. The Touch Sensor Modules identify and trace objects by detecting reflected infrared light.
“This solution by MiTAC is breaking new ground as it opens up for new kiosk segments with larger displays that we haven’t addressed before. Further, it’s suggestive to see how our contactless technology come into play in a context with sensor fusion and artificial intelligence and we look forward to growing our smart kiosk business with MiTAC,” said Dr. Urban Forssell, CEO of Neonode.
Steven Wen, GM of MiTAC Client Business Unit said “We strongly believe contactless touch is the future of kiosk interaction and thanks to Neonode’s very capable TSMs we have been able to develop a high-performing yet economical solution. We are excited to start offering this solution, combining artificial intelligence and contactless touch, to our global customer base.”
