CEVA and eyeSight Develop a Platform to Let You Live a Touch-Free Life

June 29, 2012 - 

CEVA, and eyeSight have come together to develop a platform that will let you control your devices without even touching them.

Using a camera and a form of gesture recognition, the CEVA-MM3101 platform allows you to operate devices such as smartphones, tablets, TVs and computers, completely touch-free. The CEVA-MM3101 consumes 20x less power compared to the ARM Cortex-A9 based alternatives. Fully programmable, this platform is not limited to device control. The CEVA-MM3101 is also capable of other vision-based functions like face detection, eye tracking, 3D interpretation, object tracking as well as image and on-screen content manipulation.

“Our strategic partnership with CEVA has allowed us to further develop and refine our industry-leading gesture technologies by leveraging their powerful CEVA-MM3010 imaging and vision platform,” Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyesight said.

According to Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA, “Gesture recognition and other vision-based applications are the latest in the long list of consumer-driven applications that is fast becoming a must-have feature in smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.”

The combined eyeSight-CEVA gesture recognition solution based on the CEVA-MM3101 platform is currently available for licensing.
