Goodix demonstrates IoT solutions and biometrics for cars at Apsara Conference
Goodix is demonstrating its latest IoT products and smart applications based on its IoT platform’s core technologies at Alibaba Cloud’s 2019 Apsara Conference in Hangzhou, including a smart dashboard for cars featuring fingerprint biometrics for user authentication to activate customized settings for seat and mirror positioning, playback settings and more, according to a company announcement.
The company is also showcasing a smart lock it says can perform facial identification with 3D computer vision, even in the presence of interference from strong ambient light, with its short-pulse sensitization technology, heart rate sensors Goodix says provide highly accurate heart rate data for health and fitness applications on wearables, and smart earbuds with capacitive-based multi-channel in-ear detection (IED) and touch control.
Three years of investment in IoT have led to the development of a range of advanced IoT solutions and applications, according to the announcement, several of which Goodix is showing, including its secure microcontrollers (MCUs) with high performance and low power consumption, Bluetooth LE SoC for short-range communication, and NB-IoT SoC for Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN). Goodix says its MCU has been well received by the global market for its excellent security performance since it was commercialized in smart lock products from consumer brands such as Xiaomi and Yunding Network Technology. The demonstrations include Bluetooth 5.1 and support for 5G IoT standards.
Goodix recently acquired the Voice and Audio Solutions (VAS) business of NXP Semiconductors to strengthen its position in the IoT market.
