Lot Summary

With a 2009 priority date, the disclosed portfolio describes a touchless water control system having at least one sensor (e.g., infrared, sonic or capacitance) capable of determining hand movement from point A to point B in a first direction, from point C to point D in a second direction and from point E to point F in a third direction, thereby establishing a spatial field spaced away from a faucet through which a user’s hand can be moved to initiate or terminate water flow, temperature, and pressure. The technology also covers tapping proximate to the sensor to turn the water on or off, as well as a plurality of optional visual indicators (e.g., graphic, bar, chart, or numeric).
