APDS-9500 Imaging Gesture and Proximity Sensor

Broadcom's APDS-9500 provides an imaging-based gesture recognition function with an I²C bus interface in a single 18-pin package. It recognizes nine gestures, including move up, down, left, right, forward, backward, circle-clockwise, circle-counterclockwise, and wave. This gesture information can be easily accessed via the I²C bus. It also provides built-in proximity detection for sensing objects approaching or departing.
