In this paper we present our approach for a new contact-free Human-Machine Interface (cfHMI). This cfHMI is designed for controlling applications - instruction presentation, robot control - in the so-called "Cognitive Factory Scenario", introduced in [1]. However, the interface can be applied in other environments and areas of application as well. Due to its generic approach, this low-cost contact-free interface can be easily adapted to several independent applications, featuring individual menu-structures, etc. In addition, the modular software architecture facilitates the upgrades and improvements of the different software modules embedded in the cfHMI.
