In this paper, we examine the touchless human interface using proximity sensors array. Touchless human interfaces, including Microsoft’s Kinect, are being studied intensively. We have developed Registor Network-Structure Proximity Sensor featuring a highspeed response, touchless operation, and freely determined arrangement. It is thought that intuitive input is possible by using a human interface with highspeed response proximity sensors. We simulated interface sensor output and examined the possibility to distinguish gestures performed using sensors in experiments.
