With Touchless Interface.

A tried-and-true aeroTAP in various scenes!

about aeroTAP...

aeroTAP produce [Touchless Interface] and [3D Sensor] solution using unique Stereo Vision 3D sensors developed by nextEDGE Technology K.K..
In particular, the aero TAP 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. Interface supports the main figure which is the content or the application. The interface 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 which type of content you use.

"Make it touchless with aeroTAP..."
There is no need to develop a exclusive application for touchless operation and you can transfer to touchless using the same application you have already been using. The developer of the content can use the programming language or developing environment that is familiar to them.When you have created the content you can use aeroTAP for touchless operation.

The resource consumption, recently measured, has decreased in the recent years and the performance increased. For example, using a versatile web camera, Intel i3 CPU is 7%-12%、Intel i7 CPU is below 5% In the idle state, Intel i3 is about 5% It can also be used with stick PCs and tablet PCs.
We will keep working on minimizing the resource consumption and making the interface perform more effectively.

Simple operation and gesture definition

In addition to operation or mouse and keyboard, interface assistant features to operate the application more easily and intuitively.

By using the simple gesture on the SideIn gesture screen, you can freely set the setting s such as switching/closing applications or loading specific applications.
By displaying the virtual button on the virtual button screen and making a specific action will make content operation much easier.
By displaying the virtual scrollbar on the virtual scrollbar screen, you can operate actions such as scroll up/down zoom in/out with one hand.

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

aeroTAP 3D USB camera can scrape stereo images and depth images in real time. aeroTAP can attach multiple 3D camera at the same time without interfere. 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

USB CaeroTAP 3D amera 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.

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

For Linux (Ubuntu, Rasberry Po2/3), please use the sample code.
