The touch-less sensing and gesture recognition technologies enable a user to interact with a device to perform a specific task sans the need of touching it. The touch-less sensing can be divided into two broad markets based on the applications, namely touch-less sanitary equipment and touch-less biometric market. The report deals with the analysis of all the technologies of the above-mentioned broad markets and the gesture recognition market.

The most recent strategic development by PointGrab was its partnership with Sun Innovation Technology to bring Gesture Control to home appliances market, which is displayed in CES 2014. The system displayed PointGrab’s gesture based software ability to work with 2D cameras, allowing a user to do operations like Play or Pause music & mute the system just by placing finger on their lips, thus creating a new market segment for themselves.

Another prominent Israel based Software Company is,EyeSight Tech, which is focused on providing solutions to enable gesture recognition on consumer electronic devices. The company offers two major products; namely “EyeCan” & “EyePlay”. EyeCan software offers gesture recognition on mobile and portable devices such as laptops, cellphones, tablets & others, whereas EyePlay deals with playing games on mobile phones & gaming consoles using gestures.

The demand for touch-less biometrics is on the rise owing to the accuracy on the part of the system. The contact-less biometric solutions are more hygienic as compared to the touch-based biometric systems. The touch-less sensing market is expected to reach $11.0 billion by the end of 2020 at a CAGR of 24.03%. The key players in the touch-less sanitary equipment market are iTouchless (U.S.), and Simplehuman LLC (U.S.). The key players in touch-less biometric solutions include: TST Biometrics (Germany), Touch-less Biometric Systems (Germany), and IrisGuard (Switzerland).

The USP of EyeSight touch free technology is that it is completely software based &independent of underlying processor and camera hardware. The technology can also be easily integrated with various levels of digital device: on chipset level, OS, part of camera module or simply at the application level. Integration involves low cost & minimum resource deployment thus enabling OEMs to have competitive edge at low cost.

The latest strategic development for EyeSight was its partnership with ARM so as to offer gesture control on ARM® Mali™ GPUsthus optimizing gesture control for chips using Mali T-600 graphics. With the help of ARM GPU’s EyeSight’s software can now track 3D movement, facial expressions and finger gestures, which will eventually lead to Kinect-like control of phones & smart TV’s using relatively ordinary silicon.
