Finger touch sensor in metawear

Shall we able to get finger touch recognition from metawear board? 


  • What are you looking for specifically? One touch? buttons? capacitive? membrane? tap? resistive? fingerprint?
    You need to be more precise for us to be able to help.
  • I am asking about finger tap recognition ( like fitbit device touch recognition )

    Purpose : 

    Manual sleep mode : user need to initiate sleep mode manually (using finger tap). first time tap for start sleep and second time tap for wakeup

    Tap recognition from related objects : For example metawear board placed on the table. if user tap on the table, metawear board should recognise that finger tap by vibration or any other sensor 

  • tap detection is already part of the Android and iOS API; just look at the documentation at and for demos
