Forecast on Gesture Control Market for the Period 2016 - 2026

Posted by Chhidami on November 15th, 2017

Gestures are natural and common form of communication for human beings. In today’s digital era of human machine interface (HMI) gesture control has become a primitive part of interaction. Gesture control is a technique to communicate with or without touching machines. Gesture control finds wide applications from electronics to medical industry. One of the leading companies in gesture control technology developed NUIA software (award winning) which uses gestures to control computer operation. Gesture control systems use sensors which can be either device, vision or electric field based for interaction. Gesture control technology is also available in the popular virtual reality and augmented reality applications. eyeSight Technologies Ltd. an Israeli company and prominent player in gesture control technology market developed touch free gesture control which tracks user’s finger at a distance of 16 feet away. Gesture control market has potential opportunity and is expected to gain adoption among users during the forecast period.
