Abstract

A novel touch sensing technique is proposed. By utilizing partial shadowing of a photovoltaic (PV) module, touch events are accurately detected. Since the PV module also works as a power source, a battery-less touch sensing device is easily realized. We develop a wireless touch commander consisting of 6 PV modules so the user can input by using both touch and swipe actions.
