Eye Tracking, Gestures and Proximity Applications

Sensor technology is becoming a disruptive force in the technology market and companies are working to discover new methods of application. From digital pens to advanced driver assistance systems, sensors are becoming more prevalent everywhere we go. Technology and sensory components allow humans to be more “in tune” with the environments and objects we interact with on a daily basis. Companies and innovators recognize these sensors can be used to improve health, prevent accidents, or simply to monitor and improve the efficiency of the work output of an individual. Regardless of the need, these sensors are here to provide solutions and companies are working hard to discover new, innovative uses and methods of applications.

This report examines the category of human-to-machine / machine-to-machine interaction, and more specifically, sensors that track eye movement, gestures, and proximity inputs. The study analyzes the different applications for these sensors in ABI Research’s defined vertical markets. Furthermore, this report discusses the challenges companies may face entering these markets and the potential obstacles in these different environments and methods of application.
