New Frontiers in Dynamic Gesture Sensing for Automotive Applications


Automakers predict driver safety will improve when gesture and proximity sensing replace knobs and touchscreens for infotainment, phone, side mirror, climate, trunk, sunroof, and reading lamp controls. However, most gesture-sensing systems in today’s market are based on traditional time-of-flight (ToF) cameras that also bring high cost, complexity, and space issues, which many system designers wish to avoid.

This 15-minute Webinar covers streamlined, cost-effective automotive gesture-sensing solutions featuring infrared-based optical sensors with integrated photodiode array and lens. It also includes a dynamic gesture-sensing demo and explains how to swiftly implement the right solution into your next design. Some attendees will be offered a free evaluation kit at Maxim Integrated’s discretion.

In addition to automotive applications, the gesture solutions explored in the presentation are also suitable for medical, industrial, consumer electronics, and IoT designs.

Viewers may submit their questions during the presentation.
