SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- PixArt Imaging Inc., a leading provider of human-machine interface (HMI) solutions, today announced a design engagement with Pantech to offer a first of its kind gesture motion capability for their IM-A880S (VEGA LTE-A) smart phone. The phone will feature PixArt Imaging's Gesture Sensor (PAC7620) that provides touch-free user interaction with phone to provide an easy and intuitive user experience.
The invisible IR image-based PixArt PAC7620 Gesture Sensor creates a three-dimensional gesture space extending 6 inches above the phone to allow the user to seamlessly interact with their phone without the need to hold or touch the phone. The PAC7620 provides hands-free user control of the phone through simple hand gestures. The nine user gestures (up, down, left, right, wave, forward, backward, clockwise, and counterclockwise) allow intuitive interaction with the phone for gesture enabled applications. This can be an ideal interaction for hands-free or gloved operation if the user's hands are occupied or too dirty to touch the phone.
The PixArt Gesture Engine addresses the shortcomings of existing human-machine interaction by enabling intuitive, simple gestures for users to easily control their phone. Traditional touch navigation requires full user attention and can be limited by the user's inability to use the touch screen at the time.
"Our company vision is to develop innovative human/machine interface solutions with our advanced imaging technologies. Providing the capability for users to easily operate their phones with simple hand movements creates a smooth, intuitive interaction for users to heighten their enjoyment of advanced technologies," said Dennis Lo, President, PixArt Imaging USA. "We believe this gesture sensor will help to spur new innovative trends in user gestures for application not only in smart phones but also in other devices as well."
"Our IM-A880S (VEGA LTE-A) smart phone will lead the way with the new trend in user gestures for mobile phones. We think this innovative technology will expand the capabilities of our advanced phones to show customers what the future of mobile computing and interaction can be. With the IM-A880S (VEGA LTE-A), we can showcase the advanced user gestures that will demonstrate the commitment that Pantech has to innovate in the mobile market', said Pantechs' representative.
Computing tasks ranging from simple to complex can now be accomplished with natural hand movements. Currently, the Pantech IM-A880S (VEGA LTE-A) user interactions enabled by the PixArt Gesture Engine include:
- Basic navigation (Up, Down, Left, Right) for browsing or scrolling Web pages
- Zoom In/Out function for pictures or 3-D space movement
- Scroll gestures for forward and reverse movement and volume control through video or music
- Motion detection for phone wake-up or silence applications
The PixArt Gesture Engine integrates easily into existing smart phones designs with its small form factor and standard I2C interface. Operators can customize the gesture engines capabilities, creating their own user interaction and application usage to best fit their user's requirements and expectations. Additionally, the PAC7620 provides better and more gestures recognition in comparison to simple photodiode approaches. The PAC7620 also has lower power consumption and latency when compared to conventional cameras solutions paired with software gesture recognition.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
