Movea and Freescale to Promote New Intelligent Motion-Sensing Platform

Movea, a provider of motion processing and data fusion technologies recently declared its collaboration with the supplier of embedded processing solutions, Freescale Semiconductor, for integrating MotionCore motion processing software modules of Movea with Freescale’s ColdFire-based processors for creating a new Intelligent Motion-Sensing Platform. This integrated technology will be demonstrated at Freescale Technology Forum in San Antonio.

Movea’s MotionCore Foundation package, such as calibration and orientation modules will be clearly demonstrated. The system operates on a Freescale ColdFire-based processing platform and drives compelling mobile applications based on onboard MEMS sensors. As a part of Freescale’s Xtrinsic family of intelligent sensor platforms, this combined system carries out calculations essential for advanced applications like consistent auto calibration, gesture recognition, tilt-compensated eCompass, and pedometer functionality. Movea will showcase its 3D orientation module, featuring the company’s innovative potential of motion tracking below a degree of accuracy.

In contrast to other technologies, Movea’s MotionCore solution is platform agnostic, where the company will be placed as a leading supplier of scalable and flexible data fusion software modules. It enables retailers of processor, sensor and mobile platform to provide a comprehensive solution to smartphone and tablet OEMs/ODMs. By optimizing MotionCore software modules for mobile motion based applications, performance will be improved while minimizing power consumption at a reduced cost, effective for mobile devices.

Movea and Freescale will jointly make their innovative solution available to device manufacturers, handset manufacturers, and mobile operators for applications such as gesture-based device/application control, indoor/pedestrian navigation, motion gaming, activity monitoring, and augmented reality. MotionCore IP cores can be licensed from Movea.
