Sensor Fusion Software from Sensor Platforms
January 20, 2013
The FreeMotion Library of algorithmic software from Sensor Platforms, San Jose, CA, enables context-aware applications on mobile devices to proactively engage with the user. Context awareness involves algorithms that interpret sensor data to infer higher-level information, such as the whether device is in motion, how the device is being carried, the posture of the user, and the mode of transportation, such as train, car, or airplane. The algorithms distill a context into a series of characteristic features in sensor data and can be used to preserve battery life, using a layered framework to conserve sensor and computation power required to understand user contexts.
