Press Release: “OMRON Develops Hand Gesture Recognition Technology”Description:

  1. A trigger motion is unnecessary by facial sensing technology. By combining gesture recognition with OMRON’s facial image sensing technology, a user's intention can be estimated by relationship between the position/direction of the face and the hand position. It is possible to realize more natural user interaction in various devices.

Trigger Motion

  1. Recognizes the motion and shape of the hand. Simple instructions usually used in most human interfaces such as “up,down,left, right” can be simply defined by a V-sign, 1-finger sign and other finger poses. The position of hand can be detected simultaneously.
    *More hand motions and shapes will be recognized in the future.

Recognizing Motion

  1. Recognition occurs in a wide distance range

Motion range

  1. Works on various devices such as Web cameras, built-in cameras and digital cameras.
