Frost & Sullivan recognises CEVA with award
Based on its recent analysis of the global sensor fusion for the consumer electronics market, Frost & Sullivan has recognised CEVA, with the 2021 Global Company of the Year Award. CEVA's MotionEngine software solution integrates dynamic sensor calibration, sensor fusion and a deep portfolio of application-specific algorithms to uniquely enable high quality, contextually aware devices in diverse industries.
Contextual awareness provides end users with a unique experience when using devices that include the MotionEngine software. In addition, CEVA’s SensPro family of sensor hub DSPs further enhance sensor-enabled devices by ensuring scalable performance and high utilisation for the increasingly complex and diverse artificial intelligence (AI) sensing workloads of contextually aware devices.
“CEVA's centralised sensor fusion solution enables data processing and fusion in a broad range of environmental conditions. This unique capability accelerates technology growth across many applications," said Ranjana Lakshmi Venkatesh Kumar, Senior Research Analyst. "MotionEngine has numerous features, such as context awareness, cursor control, activity tracking, dead reckoning, and gesture recognition, which can be configured for specific applications and integrated into distinct packages."
Multiple application features make MotionEngine a viable option for various use cases requiring high-accuracy sensors, such as robots, hearables, PC’s, handeld controllers, livestock trackers, professional sports equipment, and 5G fixed wireless antennas. CEVA’s SensPro sensor hub DSP family can work with the MotionEngine software to provide a single processor that can handle the tasks of signal processing and sensor fusion from a variety of sensors, including inertial measurment units (IMUs), cameras, microphones, radar, LiDAR, and time-of-flight.
SensPro is also optimal for computer vision, SLAM and AI workloads, leveraging third party software and custom AI engines as well as CEVA’s broader software portfolio, including CEVA-SLAM SDK, ClearVox audio front-end, WhisPro speech recognition and Immervision wide-angle image processing and data-in-picture technologies.
CEVA’s versatile MotionEngine sensor fusion software solution uses powerful fusion algorithms and has been shipped in more than 200 million consumer electronic devices from leading OEMs including iRobot, LG Electronics and Samsung. MotionEngine is the only sensor fusion software system that enables the transformation of human and machine movement into an application-ready format, allowing developers and manufacturers to deliver everyday products with high precision sensing capabilities.
With its compatibility with multiple operating systems, processor architectures, and sensors from many leading suppliers, the technology can be easily integrated into functional sensor systems without hindering the existing infrastructure.
"CEVA's ability to offer a highly customisable solution with contextual awareness can greatly enhance the customer experience," noted Kumar. "The company's strategic model of ensuring that a variety of industry participants have easy access to these solutions positions it as a leader among providers of sensor fusion in the consumer electronics industry."
