Product of the Year: Capacitive Gesture Control

Product of the Year: Capacitive Gesture Control

In February, we received the "Product of the Year" award for capacitive gesture control in the category Industrial + IOT by the well-known German trade magazine Elektronik (German only). Innovative products and technologies were presented in a total of eight different categories, from which the readership could choose their favorites.

As a human machine interface, contactless operation using gesture control offers numerous advantages. Based on Microchip's GestIC® technology, we have internally developed a controller board that combines 2D PCAP functionality with 3D gesture control. In addition to the usual input by touch, the GUI can be operated using defined gestures without touching the system.

"We are very pleased that our innovative capacitive gesture control has been honored with the Product of the Year award. The award is a confirmation of our innovative strength and at the same time underlines our mission to support our customers' business operations with groundbreaking technology developments," explains Markus Hell, Head of Product Management for Touch Solutions at DATA MODUL.
