Mikroe MIKROE-5742 IR Gesture 3 Click is a compact add-on board with contactless gesture recognition. The Mikroe MIKROE-5742 features the ADPD1080, a photometric front-end from Analog Devices. The IR Gesture 3 Click allows gesture recognition in two dimensions, with a built-in optical filter and a sharp visible light cutoff. The board eliminates the need for external lenses and preserves the dynamic range of the sensor when placed under sunlight or indoor lighting. It does not require a precise alignment because its sensor maintains a linear response within the ±35° angular field of view. This Click board™ makes the perfect solution for developing various gesture sensing applications, from hand swipe gestures (left, right, up, down, wave), air click, and flicks to multizone proximity detection.
