Google and Infineon's partnership is working to develop a sensing solution for radar-based technology.
Potential applications for the solution include wearables, internet of things and automotive applications. The companies have demonstrated its first implementations – which provide gesture recognition and presence detection capability – at the Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco.
It is based on Infineon’s 60GHz transceiver technology while integrating RF transceiver, antenna and control electronics in a single package. Infineon is working with the Google ATAP team on this radar-based sensor and provides solutions for wireless communications to other divisions at Google.
Why It Matters:
A partnership between Google and Infineon equates to exciting developments in the wearables sector, with sensing solutions spanning thousands of real-world applications.
