A leading self-service kiosk provider has revamped its terminals for the Covid-19 age by making them gesture-controlled rather than relying on touch screens.

Touchless self-service solutions avoid hand to kiosk contact and eliminate any hygiene concerns. With many companies now turning to no-touch tech and contactless devices. Now tech firm imageHOLDERS is on a mission to be at the forefront of self-service kiosk technology, innovating digital kiosks based on what’s most important for customers and end users.

80% of consumer, according to an UltraLeap survey, think public touchscreens are unhygienic and so this imageHOLDERS innovation is crucial in restoring public confidence as we learn to live with Covid-19.

The touchless self-service kiosk is powered by a hand tracking camera. Users can type, select, scroll and navigate a kiosk display using mid-air gestures and without having to touch the screen.

This non-touch approach reduces the risk of spreading germs and bacteria build up at a self-service kiosk, something customers and end users have become increasingly aware of since the outbreak of Covid-19.

imageHOLDERS’ gesture control technology uses an optical hand tracking module that captures the movement of hands and fingers so they can interact naturally with the on-screen content.

The controller is capable of tracking hands within a 3D interactive zone that extends up to 60cm or more. The software can discern 27 distinct hand elements, including bones and joints, and track them even when they are obscured by other parts of the hands.

CEO Adrian Thompson says: “We are extremely proud with our latest innovation. Our mission for this touchless kiosk was to instil confidence in the general publication and in turn galvanise multiple industries to be able to get back to full strength in a post-Covid world. imageHOLDERS interactive kiosk solutions are both intuitive and easy to use. Plus, our digital kiosks are tailorable to every business for each required user journey. Developing this touchless technology was a gratifying challenge and I am very excited to see how it helps people navigate their busy lives in real world applications.”
