Context Aware Software

Learn MoreContext Aware software makes use of mobile sensors even when users are not directly interacting with their devices, so that apps can know the users’ context and thus proactively support their lives. This will empower a new generation of smart devices that will improve people’s lives without intruding on their activities. Sensor Platforms optimizes its context aware architecture for mobile applications by:

  • Providing a layer of basic user contexts: device motion, carry, posture, and transport;
  • Implementing a Resource Manager that directs computing sources when contexts are changing, and minimizing power consumption when contexts remain unchanged;
  • Featuring contexts to allow system power management: e.g. know when a user has not moved and thus skip GPS refresh, or know that the device is in a pocket and turn off backlight;
  • Presenting app developers with a familiar API that treats contexts as virtual sensors.

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.
