This sensor module integrates gesture recognition and touch detects functions in one piece, and provides an adjustable detection range within 0~30cm. When connected to your micro-controller, it can detect 5-way touch signal and 7 kinds of gestures: move left, move right, move forward, move backward, pull up, pull down, pull and remove. Besides, the sensor is also equipped with the function of auto-sleep and wake up. The module comes with the gesture recognition algorithm and provides simple and reliable data output. Use the sensor to directly communicate with upper computer or micro-controllers like Arduino and Raspberry Pi via serial port.
The outer shield for the sensor retains the advantages of Gravity series as well as makes the sensor more durable. This sensor can be used to make smart lamp, DIY intelligent car, or used in interactive projects requiring gesture recognition.
The onboard 5-way touch pad on the sensor can be directly used to detect touch, or you can extend the touch pad with wires to make it perfectly fit in your application.
