Capacitive proximity sensors can be used to implement a variety of expressive input devices. They are especially suitable for Whole Body Interaction as they are small, robust, flexible, and can be both worn on the body or embedded into the environment. This chapter discusses technical challenges that arise when using capacitive sensors for tracking human motion, namely sensor shielding and ensuring both low latency and high sensitivity. A custom sensor design and an adaptive moving average… CONTINUE READING
