Filtering out glass reflection with octolively


I have been wondering how you are able to avoid detecting touch on the octolively when there is a glass surface?
And can you speak briefly of how the IR detection works on the octolively, what components are used and how the related software operates.



  • The basic idea is that the software uses a "high pass" filter, that only looks at changes in the brightness level. For the hardware and software-- both of which are open source --please see the documentation on our wiki.
