Does this RC sensor method work as well when I use in devices which has battery supply? I've made an appliance with the same sensors although I had the connect the machine's ground to the person who use it.

ST's reply: "Implementing ?capacitive sensing keys, wheels?and sliders using STM8 and the RC touch software library on handheld battery powered applications is possible. In fact, today,?capacitive sensing is already widely used in such applications (MP3 players in particular).??The sensing technology?implemented in our STM8 Touch solution works also for handled devices not connected to the ground."
