1. A method of maintaining a pressure input path in a sensing array, said sensing array comprising a plurality of sensing elements, said method comprising the steps of:
activating a first sensing element to determine a first location data point;
activating a second sensing element to determine a second location data point;
calculating a state location and a state velocity based on said first location data point and said second location data point to create a state vector;
determining a predicted path of at least one further location data point from said state vector;
updating said state vector by replacing an earlier location data point with a later location data point derived from activation of a further sensing element;
utilizing said predicted path to provide a continuous pressure input path to prevent drop out of an input gesture; and
terminating said predicted path following a predetermined time period in which no further sensing elements have been activated.
