Instinct Touch Technology
Instinct Touch Technology is a system that combines Instinct gesture recognition software with a multi-touch interface device to provide an intuitive human interface control solution for OEM equipment. The system allows a user to perform a robust set of commands for navigation, search, menu selection, image manipulation and many other functions.
The latest control innovation from Grayhill, Instinct Touch Technology allows equipment users to control and manipulate 2D and 3D images in real time. This touch control system employs multi-touch devices that read finger gestures. The Instinct software suite contains tools to track touchpoint data and interpret it as gestures, ready to be passed to the user's application software.
T4 Touch Panel
Grayhill's Series T4 is a projected capacitive touch panel with superb optical characteristics. This best in class touch technology for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) combines a high resolution touch sensor optically bonded to protective cover glass with an advanced multi-touch controller. The advantages of this design include increased durability and improved optics. The proprietary controller is designed to meet stringent EMC requirements making it suitable for electrically noisy systems and environments.
T2 Multi-Touch Control Wheel (MTCW)
The Multi-Touch Control Wheel combines a touchpad with a circular groove that functions as a virtual rotary encoder. Gestures are read on the 70mm touchpad while running a finger around the groove produces incremental encoder output. North, South, East and West points in the groove function as a virtual joystick, allowing the user to navigate through on-screen menus. The entire device is sealed against liquids and dirt, making it easy to clean and disinfect.
T1 Multi-Touch Ring Encoder (MTRE)
The Multi-Touch Ring Encoder features a 50mm diameter surface that tracks multiple touch positions. Tracked touch-point data is sent from the device via USB to the system using Instinct software for interpretation. For mechanical control, a ring encoder encircles the touchpad and the entire knob can be pressed. The rotary function allows the user to scroll through options and the pushbutton selects the desired setting. Implementing the MTRE eliminates the need for additional devices such as joysticks, touchpads and trackballs. This results in a compact and intuitive user interface.
Instinct Software Development Kit (SDK)
The Instinct SDK gives users the freedom to not only imagine revolutionary new products, but also the capability to get those new products to market quickly and cost-effectively. The development kit provides the user with a common development platform for prototyping and evaluating different solutions. In addition, the kit gives several example projects with step-by-step instructions. The kit is available directly from Grayhill or from one of several distributers.
