An Introduction to Capacitive Sensing in Human-Computer Interaction

For more than two decades, capacitive sensing has played a prominent role in human-computer interaction research. Capacitive sensing has become ubiquitous on mobile, wearable, and stationary devices—enabling fundamentally new interaction techniques on, above, and around them. The research community has also enabled human position estimation and whole-body gestural interaction in instrumented environments. However, the broad ?eld of capacitive sensing research has become fragmented by different approaches and terminology used across the various domains. In this talk, I present a new common taxonomy for capacitive sensing  and show how this taxonomy applies to research in the field. Moreover, I will present challenges for current and future work in capacitive sensing.
