With Touchless Interface.

A tried-and-true aeroTAP in various scenes!

About aeroTAP...

aeroTAP solution consist of Palm tracking Touchless Interface and 3D Sensor using unique Stereo Vision 3D sensors developed by nextEDGE Technology K.K.
In particular, the aeroTAP touchless interface is an unprecedented interface designed for user interface use.
Stereo vision type 3D sensors are expected to be used in many new technological fields and we will support the use for their applications.


aeroTAP Touchless Interface design concept

Minimum resource consumption

aeroTAP is a interface to connect a person and a device. The role for interface is to support the main figure such as the application. aeroTAP evo is designed to keep the resource consumption such as CPU of the computer as low as possible with an effective performance. It also provides intuitive touchless operation according to the type of content you use.

"Make it touchless with aeroTAP..."
aeroTAP will turn the existing application into a touchless system without the need of any development ( customization may be made ).

The resource consumption, which we recently measured, decreased compared to the previous results, while the performance increased. For example, Intel i3 CPU is 5%-10%, Intel i7 CPU is below 5%. In the idle state, Intel i3 is below 5% It can also be used with stick PCs and tablet PCs.

Simple operation and gesture definition

In addition to operation with mouse and keyboard, interface assistant features which will help you operate the application more easily and intuitively.

■ SideIn gesture will provide switching/closing applications or loading specific applications more easily.
■ Virtual button will make operation much easier.
■ Virtual scrollbar enables you to operate scroll up/down, zoom in/out action with one hand.
■ Palm gesture enables you to rotate, Flip and Tap and Drag with one hand.


Enabling touchless access

■ Web contents such as HTML/JavaScript
■ 3D Contents/VR contents developed by Unity
■ Touch Screen based application
■ Others makes more easy access to existing applications

■ Others, Custome touchless solution using Palm or 3D object tracking
We provides custome app development using touchless engine.


aeroTAP  evo Palm Tracking Mode

aeroTAP evo uses Palm Tracking and distance data to provide fast image processing. it provides palm tracking with very low CPU consumption.

■ Variety of  'Click' actions
You can assign Click actions to each content. Actions are: "Close to Click", "Push to Click", "Stop to Click".

■ Wide range operation
From 50cm to 2.5M. By using Zoom feature, aeroTAP evo can provide long range touchless operation.

■ No development/modification needed
To start touchless operation, just connect aeroTAP camera and run aeroTAP evo.

■ Assistance features
User can add "Virtual Button", "Virtual Scrollbar" to specific application to make operation simple.


aeroTAP evo Virtual Touch Screen Mode


aeroTAP evo now supports Virtual Touch Screen mode (VT Mode). User can define virtual touch screen within 3D space in camera view
It also supports hover panel on touch panel to indicate pointing.
VT Mode provides Mouse Event mode and Touch Event mode.
All assistance features such as virtual buttons, virtual scroll bar and gestures are also enabled. You can turn existing system to touchless system without making any modification to the system.

* This feature is for embedded purpose only. The calibration process is required to design virtual touch screen.

aeroTAP 3D USB camera (Stereo Vision 3D Sensor)

aeroTAP 3D USB camera can scrape real time stereo images and depth images. aeroTAP can attach multiple 3D camera at the same time without putting extra load on CPU. It is available for IoT device, development of digital contents, real time 3D reconstruction and development of touchless interface.

Usage Example - Object Detection and tracking

aeroTAP 3D USB Camera SDK (Windows OS). Width USB 2.0, capture 640x480 Depth Map at 30 FPS Detect object within 2.5m distance from camera. Object's size (rectangle), gravity center (x,y,z), and peak point (x,y,z)
Detect object within 50cm distance from camera.

Usage Example - 3D Point Cloud

Capture Color image and depth map from aeroTAP 3D USB camera, and process 3D points cloud after 3D noise reductions (Post Process)

About development environment

To make an existing application touchless using aeroTAP evo, you can do so without changing the application.

When using 3D point cloud data on Windows OS, use SDK or OpenNI2 driver which are both free of charge.

For Linux (Ubuntu, Raspberry Pi2/3), please use the sample code.
