Gestures are the most natural and global form of human communication. But todays IT environment forces us to use abstract control devices, e.g. keypads, mouse, touch or – on a basic level – voice control. By introducing gestures to the human-machine-interface the communication becomes more intuitive, natural, faster and fun. Today, there are some proprietary 3D sensors in the market with linked software solutions but there is a lack of a stable, reliable as well as resource efficient middleware.

gestigon ( has developed a camera agnostic and platform independent middleware software for gesture recognition and –control for full body, hand- and finger gestures. gestigon’s software solution is – by 10x and more – far more resource efficient and has a smaller computational footprint as any known competitive product and, at the same time, is more stable, more detailed and with less latency. gestigon also has a unique UX/UI design available. The solution is protected by patents in the global key markets and further applications are in preparation.

The business model of gestigon is based on a scalable B2B licensing model. Additional pilot projects, maintenance contracts etc are offered. gestigon is the global market leader for software solutions in the segment automotive.

gestigon is located in Lübeck, Germany, has an office in the Silicon Valley and 21 employees. The management team consists of Moritz von Grotthuss (CEO) and Sascha Klement (CTO). The shareholders of the company are the management, HTGF, MBG-SH and two professors of the university of Lübeck.
