Quick question about capacitive sensing with STM32

Good morning,

We are starting a project from scratch, with some capacitive sensing involved in the preliminary definition.
But, it is not a human "finger" the guy to be detected. It has to be a material object that will place over the capacitive area. It will also be designed to detect the presence of human "feet".
I worked, long time ago, with finger-touch sensors, and I don't know the current state-of-the-art in these terms.
Is it possible to develop this kind of application with the current capsensing systems, included in the STM portfolio? I know after that first hurdle, comes the sensor design and "environment" control (material gap, thickness, calibration...) but that is second part of the story.

Thanks so much.
