Sensor Platforms Featured at Three Venues at CES

Sensor Platforms will appear in three venues at the 2013 International CES this week:

  • in the MEMS TechZone: LVCC South Hall 2, Booth 25321;
  • CEO Dan Brown will speak on a panel on “How to Never Get Lost in a Mall or a Museum: Indoor Navigation and the Smartphone,” in the MEMS Conference Track, Tuesday January 8th at 9:00 am, LVCC North Hall, Room N264;
  • and in a private suite.

The booth demo addresses the concern of OEMs who need to design one mobile device, whether smartphone or tablet, to work in an Android environment, and another to work in a Windows 8 environment. Software in the company’s FreeMotion™ Library, which allows OEMs to use sensors from any component supplier, enables the same sensor hub to work in either environment.

The booth demo also includes a short video addressing Context Awareness. Interested visitors can then make appointments to visit the suite.

The company’s FreeMotion Library, implemented in a sensor hub, supports the Human Input Device (HID) framework required for Windows 8 systems. Sensor Platforms’ FreeMotion Library for Android can accept HID Sensor inputs so the same sensor module works in either operating system environment.

According to Ian Chen, EVP at Sensor Platforms, “Our customers look to Sensor Platforms not only for sensor fusion performance but also to improve their engineering efficiency. This ability we provide to use the same hardware design and software code base for either operating system makes the OEM’s job of system integration and validation much more efficient. In addition to being operating system agnostic, our single code base also supports sensor components from all key suppliers, and processor instruction sets of all key microprocessors.”

The video at the booth shows how the FreeMotion Library also enables context aware applications on mobile devices to proactively engage with, and not merely interact with, the user. This capability is in beta this quarter, and in production later this year.

About Sensor Platforms (www.sensorplatforms.com)

Sensor Platforms is a venture-financed company located in Silicon Valley that develops, for licensing, algorithmic software enabling consumer applications to better understand user contexts and intent.

The company’s FreeMotion™ Library makes sensor fusion and user context awareness available in smartphones and tablets, to combine and process data from installed sensors and microprocessors, to better interpret users’ movements and situations, and infer their intents.

The library makes it easy for device OEMs to purchase their sensors and microprocessors from multiple suppliers without damaging user experience. It also automatically optimizes sensor and platform power consumption based on user movement and contexts, to enable longer battery life.

To create the breadth of the FreeMotion library, the company has assembled a multi-disciplinary engineering team with proven track records in control systems, machine learning, mixed signal design, motion kinematics, real-time systems, semiconductor device physics, and signal processing.

The company is located at 2860 Zanker Road, #210, San Jose, CA 95134. For information: [email protected], or 408.850.9350.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
