High precision sensing of the environment and our own movements is increasingly crucial to energy management of devices and accurately registering position and decisions of Mobile & AR/VR device users. ams OSRAM has a rich history in leading edge sensing solutions for proximity sensing, gesture control, hand & face tracking, eye tracking and environmental monitoring. Using our high-performance IR LED and Laser portfolio, NIR enhanced micro-cameras, and associated optics, we offer truly world-class solutions with a small form factor, low power, and high precision.
The gesture product family for Mobile performs advanced gesture detection, proximity detection, digital Ambient Light Sensing (ALS) and color sensing (red, green, blue and clear). It also implements optical pattern generation for barcode transmission and remote controls.
The gesture sensor modules provide a highly integrated solution offering five essential functions to enable a touchless interface and to optimize the end user experience of communications and consumer electronics equipment. Gesture detection uses four directional photodiodes to sense IR energy emitted from the integrated LED, converting the measurements of reflected IR light into information about physical motion.
