*You can change the display style of the guidance with Customize the UI.


Restricting touchless areas

To restrict the area for touchless operation, use the command parameters and define the area.

For example, with a large wall display (using the whole wall as a display), you can set just one part (in front of the operator) as the area to operate touchlessly.


Set the interval time to display the guidance image again (10 sec by default) 

When the display of the guidance image is enabled, guidance will be displayed on detection of operator. If the operator starts operation, it will disappear and 10seconds after the operator stops operation, it will be displayed again.

The duration to display the guidance can be adjusted by changing the following registry value.

Edit the following registry file and apply the change.

aerotap_GUIDANCE_COUNTDOWN.reg

Unit used for definition is second(s). Example: Value 180 means 3minutes.

How the guidance will be displayed when the value is set to 0:

1. Guidance will be displayed when operator is detected.

2. It will disappear when he/she starts operation.

3. Even when he/she stops operation, guidance will not be displayed.

4. Guidance is shown when a operator comes back and is detected (Back to #1).


Change the size of the feedback area

To customize the size of the feedback area, edit the following registry file and apply the change.

aerotap_FEEDBACK_SIZE.reg

For the value FeedbackWith, define the width in pixels, using hexadecimal numbers. The height will be calculated automatically.


Configuration of depth mask when the depth data is acquired incorrectly

In some environments that you install your camera, the depth data may not be acquired correctly. This might be because of specific textures or lights in the background causing blown out highlights. You can check this symptom with the depth map image in aeroTAP camera settings. The light in the far back will be shown red which means it is detected to be closer than reality. You may see that walls with specific textures are displayed to be closer than their actual distance.

These symptoms can be solved by creating a depth mask data and by masking it. Create the mask image

To disable this feature, apply the registry for OFF.


Always return the cursor to (0,0) when palm tracking is finished

In some applications, operation will be executed by monitoring the cursor position. When you stop moving the cursor and palm tracking with aeoTAP ends, the cursor will stay at that point. In some applications, this may cause unwanted actions. To avoid that from happening, set this option which moves the cursor to the top right (0,0) when palm tracking ends.

Edit the following registry setting and apply the change.

aerotap_NoPalmHideCursor_ON.reg

To restore, edit the following registry file and apply the change.

aerotap_NoPalmHideCursor_OFF.reg

Disable monitor switch under multi-monitor environment

When you want to lock the operation monitor or disable the monitor change in a multi monitor environment, apply the registry shown below.

Use MJPEG mode to enhance FPS with USB2.0 connection
