Processor manufacturers incorporating gesture recognition
Leading processor manufacturers such as Qualcomm, Microchip, and Texas Instruments have been focusing on the development of new processors that support gesture recognition technology. Processor manufacturers are also engaging in collaborations with gesture recognition companies to facilitate the smoother integration of gesture recognition technology in their processors.
“With the advent of technologies such as Intel's RealSense, gesture recognition is likely to penetrate into smartphones, tablets, and other devices during the forecast period,” says Chetan Mohan, a lead analyst at Technavio for human-machine interface research.
Growth in the consumer electronics market
The growing demand for devices such as smartphones, tablets, and gaming consoles is paving the way for numerous technological advances, increased functionalities, and decreased prices. Smartphones are witnessing impressive growth rates despite market saturation. There is a huge potential for smartphone sales in India, China, Indonesia, Brazil, and other emerging economies. Tablets and laptops also have a substantial share in the market due to the rising tech requirements of consumers. The consumers often opt for devices which are integrated with advanced technologies such as gesture recognition, thereby boosting the market growth.
Emergence of gestures as new medium of communication with machines
“Innovative technologies in PCs is very attractive to the users, and gesture recognition is one of those technologies that has gained acceptance not only in PCs but also in mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and portable PCs,” says Chetan.
When combined with augmented reality (AR), gesture recognition technology proves to be highly useful for graphic designers, artists, engineers, and other parties that are involved in designing. The combination of AR and gesture recognition not only facilitates better 3D visualization of designs but also eases the interaction between 3D computer designs and designers.
