Touchless Kiosks Are A Shoe In
By Mat Dirjish
The word ‘touchless’ is quickly becoming one of the big buzzwords emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, which should make marketing people very happy. With the array of emerging touchless applications, with pizza delivery being one of the biggest, companies are beginning to develop products that operate in touchless mode to accommodate the eventual end of work-at-home orders.
Kiosk Innovations concludes that most available kiosk safety options have shortcomings. Voice, sanitizing wipes, AI conversations, speech recognition, mobile proxy, and camera-based navigation, for example, have limitations in terms of effectiveness and usability. Addressing these shortcomings, the company offers two No-Touch solutions that allow touch-free navigation to mitigate the spread of any virus: Hand Gesture Navigation and Foot Controlled Navigation.
The foot-controlled Foot-Nav and gesture-controlled Gesture-Nav can mount on any existing or new kiosks with a USB connection. These devices use simple UP, DOWN, FORWARD, BACKWARD, and ENTER/SELECT keys for navigations. Both are operable simultaneously. The end-user has the ability to use either the foot pedal or the gesture module. And the touch screen is still available for those who want to do it traditionally.
