Pedestrian Navigation

  • Provides position and orientation information to phone/tablet apps
  • Features heuristics to permit incidental hand movements
  • Adapts and overcomes magnetic distortions
  • Works with smart sensors to offload app processor

Navigation systems using GPS references cannot function where GPS satellites are not accessible.  Conventional inertial navigation systems often cannot distinguish between movements of a handheld device and travel of the user and can therefore accumulate very large errors due to incidental hand movements over just a short period of  time.

Sensor Platforms applies its understanding of human bio-mechanics and motion heuristics to distinguish between the user’s trajectory and extraneous movements.  Its algorithm continuously adapts to changing real world environments.

On July 11th 2014, Audience completed the acquisition of Sensor Platforms. Audience believes the combination of its Advanced Voice and Multisensory Processing with Sensor Platforms’ technology places the combined company in a unique position to deliver compelling solutions based on the fusion of voice and motion.

Multisensory user interface with context awareness will bring fresh differentiation and end-user value to the market for smartphones, wearables and other mobile devices. Sensor Platforms has developed key technologies and software infrastructure in this space, and the combination of our engineering teams will enable us to rapidly scale our capabilities in context awareness-based user interface.

Audience welcomes the Sensor Platforms team and thanks all of its partners for their continued support during this transition.
