SoftKinetic and Melexis Announces Availability of MLX750233D Sensor for Infotainment Market

SoftKinetic and Melexis have announced the availability of MLX75023, a new time of flight, or ToF, 3D sensor for automobile safety and infotainment markets. The MLX75023 sensor, featuring SoftKinetic technology and manufactured in Melexis' Automotive grade CMOS mixed signal process, is the resolution 3D sensor available. It works in full sunlight, making it the perfect solution for a vehicle's cockpit. It can be used for natural 3D gesture recognition and robust driver monitoring, bringing a new level of infotainment navigation control and safety features. Both companies will showcase the technology at the CAR HMi event June 26-27, 2014 in Berlin. The MLX75023 is a QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) resolution optical ToF camera sensor. Featuring SoftKinetic's patented DepthSense 3D Imaging technology, and in conjunction with SoftKinetic's advanced image processing software, the sensor is capable of understanding the most subtle human gestures as well as the shape, size and behavior of objects and people inside the car. Now drivers can adjust the temperature and radio, or make a phone call, using simple gestures and without taking their eyes off the road. Additional capabilities of the sensor allow for driver behavior monitoring as well as context awareness, creating a safer environment for every passenger in the vehicle.

SoftKinetic Unveils New In-Vehicle, Gesture-Based Infotainment Solution

SoftKinetic, has unveiled a new in-vehicle, gesture-based infotainment solution based on SoftKinetic technologies and Freescale silicon. The SoftKinetic solution is built on Freescale's i.MX 6 processor, one of the industry's first truly scalable multicore platform that includes single-, dual-and quad-core families based on the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture. It also includes SoftKinetic's iisu 3D gesture recognition middleware, a complete platform for natural gesture development and deployment that supports both full body and finger/hand tracking. The solution works with most 3D depth sensing cameras and is optimized for high performance, using minimal CPU and memory resources.

MakerBot Industries, LLC Announce an Exclusive Strategic Partnership with SoftKinetic-Optrima S.A

MakerBot Industries, LLC together with SoftKinetic-Optrima S.A. announce an exclusive strategic partnership during the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This partnership is expected to help MakerBot expand its 3D Ecosystem and 3D Printing Platform, and enhance the ease of use and connectivity of MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers and Scanners. This strategic partnership is also expected help SoftKinetic enhance its 3D camera technology for 3D scanning. The exclusive relationship between MakerBot and SoftKinetic is focused on the development of next generation 3D cameras based on SoftKinetic's technology for inclusion in future MakerBot 3D scanning products. SoftKinetic's DepthSense(R) 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) depth capture technology is designed to create a seamless user experience with MakerBot Scanners and MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printers, making scanning and printing 3D images as easy as taking a picture. SoftKinetic is the leading provider of 3D vision and gesture recognition technologies for the consumer electronics, automotive and industrial markets; it is comprised of a team of mathematicians, 3D imaging specialists, software engineers and user experience experts that aim to revolutionize the interaction with digital content. Texas Instruments has licensed SoftKinetic's 3D sensor technology in a collaboration that seeks to increase adoption of gesture control in television, personal computers, and other consumer and industrial devices. Intel's perceptual computing platform is based on SoftKinetic's DepthSense 3D cameras and iisu(R) 3D gesture recognition middleware, and SoftKinetic was also chosen by Sony to bring 3D gesture recognition experience to game titles for the PS4.
