Ground-breaking Contactless Gesture Recognition Technology at CES 2013


Novel “no touch” sensing technology for consumer products based on Plessey’s EPIC sensors will be shown at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV.

Fairport, NY, January 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- A new, low cost, contactless gesture-recognition technology called imPart™ will be shown at CES 2013 in Las Vegas January 8-11 which uses Plessey Semiconductor’s award-winning EPIC™ electric potential sensors. imPart technology is designed to fit around computer monitors, portable laptop computers, ultra books and tablets to facilitate the control of devices using “no touch” gestures such as swipe, flick, up, and down. A simple 'left-click' function is accomplished by hovering the hand at any required point for more than 0.5s. Plessey’s unique low-power EPIC™ sensors detect changes in electric potential, and enable devices to be gesture-enabled without needing expensive, power hungry, capacitive touchscreen technology or video cameras.

This amazing new technology can detect very small signals even at a distance of up to 4” without physical contact. At the Consumer Electronics Show, an imPart reference design will be demonstrated that illustrates how easy and economical it is to implement a contactless pointing device in a wide range of products.

EPIC sensors work by detecting changes in the Earth’s atmospheric electric potential field caused by a hand or body moving through it. The technology functions as an ultra-high, input impedance sensor that acts as a highly stable, extremely sensitive, contactless voltmeter to measure tiny changes in the electric field down to milliVolts. Plessey’s EPIC™ sensor technology is revolutionizing many different application areas from contactless gesture recognition to ECG monitors for remote health and fitness applications.

Made by Plessey Electronics, a leading European innovator in the development of integrated circuits and sensors, Plessey Semiconductors Ltd. will be demonstrating imPart at Booth 73506, Level 3 Venetian Hotel, Las Vegas, NV.

EPIC sensors are available now in North America from Saelig Company, Inc. Pittsford, NY, Plessey’s USA technical distributor. For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact Saelig 1-888-7SAELIG.
