WHAT IS GestureR?
GestureR is an Arduino-compatible gesture sensing module series, brings you the latest technologies as seen on smartphone's gesture control.
GestureR is the first real gesture sensing shield came to the market. It is nicely constructed, tiny and user-friendly!
WHAT CAN GestureR DO?
GestureR can help you realize interactive gesture control projects, example projects such as :
GestureR + Relay Shields = Gesture Controlled Light Switch
GestureR + IR Controller Shields = Smart Remote controller
GestureR + LED Panel Shields = Smart Display
with its on-board intelligent gesture sensor, GestureR can perform various sensing needs including :
GestureR can distinguish your gesture in 4 directions in 3 different speeds.
GestureR can sense the distance of an object up to 10cm from the sensor.
Ambient Light Sensing:
GestureR can measure the level of ambient light.
The intelligent gesture sensor on GestureR contains an IR emitter and four IR photodiodes for gesture and proximity sensing, and an ambient light detector for ambient light sensing. They are located as shown in the picture below.
Infrared ray is used for gesture and proximity sensing, so the sensor will work even if it’s complete darkness. Also using IR allows the sensor to detect not only palms or conductive objects like capacitive touch sensing does, it can also detect non-conductive objects as well.
We provide sample codes in Arduino format so that you can quickly use the sensor in most typical situations. On the other hand the sensor outputs raw data and settings can be done by users for more extreme situations.
Outline of Sensor Parameters
GestureR can communicate with any Arduino Host or any microcontrollers through I2C interface.
We know that reading through datasheets is always painful when using a new shield or sensor, so we have done it for you! We have already made some sample codes for most of the useful functions in Arduino format. You can just connect GestureR to your device and use it right away with simple commands.
A SERIES OF GestureR
GestureR comes in three different models for different use cases. Choose the one which suits you most! (Selling separately)
