ALPSALPINE AirInput™ Solutions

There are many situations where people would prefer to avoid directly touching, such as elevator buttons, toilet flush buttons, train ticket machines or other input devices in public places. After all, who else might have touched them? What if they are not clean? What if their own hands are dirty? This aversion to touching has become even more pronounced of late due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

There are many situations where people would prefer to avoid directly touching, such as elevator buttons, toilet flush buttons, train ticket machines or other input devices in public places. After all, who else might have touched them? What if they are not clean? What if their own hands are dirty? This aversion to touching has become even more pronounced of late due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

Last summer, Alps Alpine developed a mid-air input demo kit for elevators and put forward a proposal. Recruit Co., Ltd. praised the solution, recognizing its operability and level of completion. Now our AirInput™ Panel and AirInput™ Switch are being trialed inside Recruit’s new building in Kudanshita (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo), which opened in April this year after renovations to embody the company’s ideas for offices of a new generation.

The AirInput™ Switch was adopted for elevator control panels. Bring your finger to within around 4cm from the number of the floor you wish to travel to and a soft light will appear around it to show it has been selected. Move your finger even closer, to within 2cm, and the selection is finalized, indicated by a white light that stays on.
