Gestures and Multi-Touch
A gesture is an action, typically a movement of a user’s finger on a Touchpad or Touchscreen interface, that is recognized by a device to perform a specified function. The functions associated with a gesture are customizable and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of a device or application. As human interfaces become more intelligent and intuitive, more and more gestures can be used to control device applications.
With in-house usability and human interface functions, Synaptics excels in gestures and multi-touch technology. Our growing library of gesture algorithms can be integrated in our human interface solutions. Enhanced Gesture Recognition (EGR), Flick, Two-Finger Flick, ChiralMotion™ and ChiralRotate™ all put new functionality at the user’s fingertips.
