TechConnect Innovation Program

3D Touch and Gesture Capacitive Sensing System

Princeton University, New Jersey, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We extend the range achievable on traditional capacitive touch screen to 30cm and beyond to enable 3D gesture sensing. The technology features newly developed ITO sensors on display and readout chip which are compatible with touch screen technology with low power consumption.

Primary Application Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Compared to existing camera based and ultrasonic based solutions, our technology has the benefits of better resolution and larger covering range over whole display area, low power consumption and no requirement for lighting conditions. In addition, this technology is readily integrated into current touch screen seamlessly without any extra hardware.
