“Botanicus Interacticus uses the recently developed Swept Frequency Capacitive Sensing technology. Previous capacitive sensing techniques measure response to touch by exciting the target objects with an electrical signal at a single frequency. We excite plants at multiple frequencies, by sweeping them through a range between 0. 1 and 3 Mhz. Because the path of the electrical signal inside the plant varies with frequency, we can estimate touch locations by observing the frequencies at which the signal was affected by user touch. Since the plant has a complex and dynamic electrical structure, we use machine - learning techniques to recognize gestures on plants reliably and with high precision.”
