Elliptic Labs joins MediaTek’s IoT Platform to develop new Smart Device Features

Manufacturer of AI virtual smart sensors Elliptic Labs announced it joined fabless semiconductor company MediaTek’s IoT Platform program. OEMs worldwide can use MediaTek’s rich IoT chipsets to create innovative smart devices for consumers and smart homes.

Elliptic’s new sensors with ultrasound as a core will give devices a customizable interaction zone. With up to 360 degree presence detection field of view, the technology responds to human presence from any angle, delivers intuitive gestures, and adapts to how people interact.
The Smart Sensor Platform utilizes a device’s existing speaker and microphone to add new capabilities. For example, IoT devices for smart homes can recognize when people enter a room and react to their presence, as well as saving power by going into sleep mode or turning off when nobody is near. Gesture control, also made available by Elliptic’s virtual smart sensors, allows users to interact with devices in an easy and natural way.

Elliptic Labs’ AI virtual smart sensors, combined with MediaTek’s cutting-edge rich IoT technology, represents a big step forward for companies developing smart IoT products for consumer use and underscores the growing significance of this market,

said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs.

According to Market and Research, an industry research group, IoT will represent 83% of the entire AI chipset market by 2023. Globally, AI in the embedded IoT devices market will approach $26 billion (U.S.) by 2023. Adding our AI Virtual Smart Sensors to MediaTek’s rich IoT processors will give OEMs a powerful platform on which to innovate across the intelligent devices market.

Mohit Bhushan, Vice President and General Manager of U.S. Business Development at MediaTek, said:

With intelligence being integrated into nearly every type of consumer device imaginable, it’s particularly attractive to OEMs to add new smart capabilities that don’t need extra hardware sensors or power. Our rich IoT chipsets with Elliptic’s Virtual Smart Sensors technology open the door to new types of connected products with innovative capabilities.
