Measured depth data - enabling recognition of tiny gestures
Infineon 3D image sensors are based on the time-of-flight principle and are able to measure for every single pixel besides the brightness also the distance from the sensor to objects. To do this, the 3D camera emits modulated infrared light and measures the time the infrared signal takes to travel from the camera to the object and back to the camera: the elapsed time, or "time of flight".
Using the time-of-flight principle the highly optimized Infineon 3D Image Sensors have the ability to reliably recognize even tiny movements like single finger tips. This is not always given by other technologies trying to capture depths data. In some cases only rather big movements are detected or the cameras cannot always exactly distinguish a finger from the rest of the hand which is overlapping in the background or the camera is too bulky to fit into small consumer devices.
Infineon 3D Image Sensors differentiate and combine all these pre-requisites to integrate natural air-gesture recognition into applications like stylish All-in-One PCs or laptops: small form-factor, reliable gesture detection, real time experience (no motion artifacts nor latency) and highest functionality and flexibility.
