T1 Multi-Touch Ring Encoder (MTRE)
Gesture recognition has become commonplace in a wide range of electronics including mobile phones and tablets. Its ease of use could be described as instinctual. Grayhill's Multi-Touch Ring Encoder with Instinct™ will aid in the design of uncluttered, easy-to-clean instrumentation for the following applications: Ultrasound equipment, medical imaging controllers, patient monitors, surgery equipment and molecular imaging.
A Shorter Distance from Mind to Machine
An intuitive, easy-to-use interface improves productivity. Instinctive movements provide a variety of commands, all without the fingers leaving the touchpad. This allows faster interaction without needing to take eyes off the screen. Plus, ergonomics are improved by consolidating all controls within easy reach.
Simplicity in use & Device Design
The Multi-Touch Ring Encoder can replace touchscreens, keypads, trackballs, switches, and joysticks. This makes for clean design and cuts costs of manufacturing. The MTRE increases the engineer's flexibility in building functionality into any product, while reducing front panel size and complexity.
