The "H2O Sense" tap uses a small camera/sensor to indicate the dimensions of the hands surface below the water tap. The user can automatically regulate the water flow by gestures which are naturally part of the hand washing process. It stops immediately there is no surface detected underneath the tap to spend a minimum amount of water. Temperature is regulated by gestures on the left and right side. The tap is not touched during its use which improves the hygienic value.
