Pyreos has completed the second stage of its global expansion, with the appointment of 10 sales and distribution channel partners to support customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
The company, a supplier of infrared sensor products, says the appointments are intended to help deal with interest in the Pyreos gesture sensor product from mobile phone and tablet computer manufacturers in China, Taiwan, Hong-Kong and Japan.
Vice-president of sales and marketing Jeff Gray explained: 'There is phenomenal interest in our low power gesture sensor in that region, which has intensified since the introduction of the Galaxy 4 by Samsung, which has gesture functionality.
'Many customers have told us that they see our gesture sensing as the lowest power and more long term solution for mobile and tablet devices that can work from close-up to a few meters of distance. It is great to add so many well established distribution partners to support our customers in their respective regions in Asia-Pac.'
The company's technology is used for applications including: touchless gesture control of mobile phones and tablet pcs; prevention of gear box failure in the engines of wind turbines, ships and helicopters; the early detection of serious medical illnesses, including diabetes; and other life-threatening conditions.
