What Is Optical Touch? The Next Big Technology For Vending 

Neonode TechnologyThe vending industry has evolved in 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed operators to implement touchless technology so that their customers don’t have to touch any surfaces.  Even though touchless technologies are rising in popularity, some customers still want to have the convenience of being able to touch buttons. The big question is how can customers touch buttons, without actually touching them?  

A real solution is Optical Touch. With this multifaceted technology, vending operators can now offer their customers the convenience of being able to interact with buttons, without having to touch the vending machine. 

Touch Sensing  

With touch sensing solutions, the vending machine keys can be displayed via a 100% retained image.  This creates a germ-free environment so that a customer can have the ability to interact with the vending machines keys without having to touch them. 

Gesture Sensing 

Another exciting version of Optical Touch is gesture sensing. This technology makes it possible for a vending machine to accurately determine the movement and position of an object. What’s even more ideal about this technology is that it will also ‘wake on approach’ and be ready for use.
