Tutorial 3: Touch Sensing Technologies
Sunday November 7th, 13:30-15:00
During the last few years, a tremendous amount of interactive surfaces
have been constructed in research labs around the world. Although
commercial devices have been available for some time now, the
flexibility afforded by custom-built interfaces is still a major factor,
particularly for experimental setups.
In the first part of this tutorial, a comprehensive overview of touch
sensor technologies, both commercial and do-it-yourself, will be given.
In the second part, a number of advanced techniques for infrared-optical
sensing will be presented with a particular focus on custom-built
setups. These techniques serve to mitigate some of the problems inherent
to optical sensors, e.g., susceptibility to stray light.
