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 as an interface.
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 Evolution 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..."
It is no longer needed to develop an exclusive application for touchless operation and you can transfer the same application you have already been using to touchless.
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, Rotate, Flip and Tap and Drag will make intuitive action.
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 Evolution, you can do so without changing the application.

Projector Head and Mount part can be separated.
Due to integrate to other system by a nut. Important: The head and the mount of the camera is firmly set together. Important: Damage as a result of reformation by user will not be guaranteed.
The USB power converter switch to toggle USB power can be disassembled and directly connected to 3V power such as GPIO to control. Important: Connector terminal is not compatible with GPIO connector so you will have to convert it. Important: Damage as a result of development will not be guaranteed.
