Movea, a leading developer of motion processing and data fusion technologies, has announced the availability of SmartFusion Studio, a new tool that eases the integration and validation of motion features for mobile devices. The SmartFusion Studio simplifies the MotionCore implementation process by providing a set of calibration and validation tools, enabling Movea partners to readily record and access sensor data, conduct system-level debugging and run qualification testing.
“Implementing and deploying data fusion capabilities for mobile devices has been a complex, time intensive and expensive process since the availability of quality tools has been quite limited. With SmartFusion Studio, customers and partners can quickly and accurately calibrate and validate sensor data integration at an early stage, significantly reducing the time and cost associated with developing, testing, and deploying motion-based features,” said Sam Guilaumé, chief executive officer of Movea.
Movea’s SmartFusion Studio is a signal processing design toolkit that provides mobile device OEMs and ODMs with a set of high-performance calibration and debugging tools, enabling rapid integration of motion-based features for valuable applications in pedestrian navigation, gesture recognition, advanced gaming, activity monitoring and contextual awareness. According to the company, usage of SmartFusion Studio shrinks time needed to integrate a set of sensors into devices from months to weeks. The SmartFusion Studio is primarily aimed at consumer, entertainment and sport applications.
Built on Movea’s expertise and intellectual property, SmartFusion Studio’s integration and calibration tools have been leveraged in the development of all of Movea’s customer products on the market today. SmartFusion Studio’s solutions are just the first set of mobile ecosystem enablement tools released by Movea. Later in the year, the company plans to launch a drag-and-drop signal processing data flow builder for effortlessly assembling chains of data fusion algorithms and rapidly prototyping new advanced features.
Collectively, these tools leverage Movea’s patent portfolio as well as 350+ man years of R&D to considerably simplify the process of integrating and testing new data fusion and motion features and reducing customer’s time to market.
“With consumers clamoring for more intelligent devices and intuitive user interfaces, Movea is leading the charge in addressing the industry need for a low-cost and effective testing and validation process that will facilitate the proliferation of contextually aware devices and applications, which in turn will dramatically enhance the end-user experience,” added Mr. Guilaumé.
