TOR (Tangible Object Recognition)

Solution for object recognition with touch displays

TOR (Tangible Object Recognition)

With Tangible Object Recognition, physical objects can be part of interactive presentations. These objects can be used as interactive control devices. Furthermore they can represent products in an interactive product presentation. The object basis appears as small plastic chip, which generates a number of touch points. Caused by different arrangements of those touch points, up to 10 different chips can be recognised. The chips’ motion can also be detected by this arrangement.


In addition to the chips, the Solutions4AV provides the interface between touch display and application PC. The TOR-Box receives the touch data generated by the chips, translates it and forwards it to the application PC. In addition to object data, normal touch data gets processed as well.   

Key features:

  • compatible to several touch technologies
  • proven communication protocol
  • up to ten objects
  • passive objects without electronic inside
  • reliable hardware
