About OptiTUIO

OptiTUIO is a laser touch controller and calibration software solution, which transforms any flat surface into a multi touch screen. It can be used with any common industrial rotation laser scanners from Leuze, Hokuyo or Sick.

This powerful solution gives you the ability to transform any flat surface into a multi touch screen.  You can use it instead of a touch frame. We sell the laser touch controller software separately and we also sell a bundle including a laser device. Feel free to contact us for more details and prices.

What is OptiTUIO?

This movie explains OptiTUIO in detail (calibration, license, GUI):

OptiTUIO in Action

 Features:

• Simplicity

The laser touch controller software was made very simple to install and calibrate the laser device. You can see what you are doing and the effect it has in realtime, so there is no need for time consuming switching between calibration and testing as in other solutions. We have translated the software into German and simplified Chinese to make it easier for speakers of these languages and we will be translating the software into other languages as well.

• Vendor independence

Our software works with lasers from multiple vendors and can be easily extended to support more vendor’s devices. This gives you flexibility in choosing the device that fits best for your use case and/or budget. Depending on which laser you choose you can get up to 40m detection radius.

• Multiple devices and outputs

One feature of our laser touch controller software is that it is able to handle multiple devices with minimal impact on the required processing power. Each of theses devices outputs can be sent to one or many different outputs, giving you full flexibility in how to distribute them. You can also define multiple outputs to send the data of one device to many target machines.This is useful for cluster operation, for example.

• SIMD processing

We used state of the art SIMD processing to make the required processing power as low as possible. This means that the software will make use of advanced processor instructions whenever it can, making the processor perform more work in the same time. Other software running on the same machine should feel minimal impact in throughput and responsiveness, making the software work easily on the same machine as for example, your realtime 3D presentation.

• Unlimited touch points

We do not put any artificial limit on the number of simultaneous touch points,  so you can track as many as you want. The upper limit is a result of the angular resolution of the laser and the minimal object size that you set to detect.

• Many output methods

Right now the software supports output to TUIO compatible devices over the network and to simulate Windows mouse and/or touch input to control a local Windows application. We also provide a separate application to perform gesture detection to control PowerPoint using swipes for example. In the future we plan to make more output methods like OSC. Contact us if you need anything specific.

• Highly optimized detection algorithms

We spent a long time building and analyzing statistics for the accuracy of the devices to optimize our filters to get the most accurate tracking possible. For each device we acquired millions of data points to get an accurate statistical analysis. This is why we are able to get a fully stable input without any jitter in the measurement. We took a lot of care to keep the impact on latency minimal and you can tune the filter parameters yourself to get a different trade off between smoothness and latency.
