OMRON Corporation today launched "Hand Gesture V2," new image sensing software that allows users to interact with machines in a natural manner. With a wider range of recognizable angles -- ±30 degrees left-right and ±20 degrees up-down -- OMRON's new software enables users to manipulate machines using more natural types of hand gestures. "Hand Gesture V2" also includes a new fingertip position detection function, enabling it to also recognize a user's hand gestures for mouse pointer movements.
OMRON's "Hand Gesture V2" will be unveiled at CEATEC JAPAN 2013 to be held October 1-5 at the Makuhari Messe fair site. In addition to the display of this new product at the OMRON Booth, OMRON will also hold a new technology and new products seminar entitled "Gesture Recognition Technology and Its Applications" at Exhibition Hall 3 of the CEATEC venue beginning at 3:30 pm on October 2.
