Google has received FCC approval to continue developing the Project Soli miniature radar system, which allows the user to control smart gadgets using gestures from a distance..
The corporation began work on the creation of a contactless control system back in 2015. It allows you to replace tapping on the screen with gestures such as rubbing your thumb and forefinger. Built inside the sensor detects movements. The technology allows you to activate smart gadgets simply by bringing your hand closer to them or with a click.
However, the first prototype poorly recognized minor user gestures, which severely limited the capabilities of the system. Google explained this by the lack of power that is installed FCC standards.
In March, the company filed for an increase in power consumption, but Facebook opposed this, citing the possibility of confusion with other existing technologies..
Contactless Payment Technology ?
After negotiations between the two giants, they came to a consensus. Google agreed to slightly reduce the sensor’s operating power and Facebook to withdraw the claim. The FCC then approved the further development of Project Soli, determining that the system could serve the public interest and not be capable of causing significant harm. Therefore, in the near future, we will most likely be able to see smart gadgets with contactless control function..
IBM previously introduced another an innovative system that is able to assess the state of human health by analyzing the deformation of the temperature and structure of his nail.
