After years of engineering and development, Google unveiled the radar-based gesture recognition Soli chipset in the Google Pixel 4 series in 2019. Technology has advanced considerably, but at the time the application was unsuccessful. Currently, Soli chips are only present in Nest thermostats and 2nd generation Nest hubs. However, the search giant recently unveiled the future of Soli chipsets on “socially intelligent” displays and tablets, and seems to want to further explore Soli’s use cases. Let’s take a look at the details below.
Google Soli Chip for smart displays and tablets
In a recent video shared on YouTube, Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group (aka ATAP) showed how to use the Soli chip on smart displays and tablets. For beginners, the Soli chip was originally developed by Google’s ATAP team.And now, researchers have explained how radar-based chipsets can be used. Develop a “socially intelligent” display that displays results by detecting the Individual head and body movements..
This video shows some of the Soli chip applications on smart displays and tablets.team is “Combination of new sensing and machine learning technology” Detects head orientation, body movements, and other gestures and takes the required action.For example, the video The emergence of potential weather conditions on the display when a person glances at the Solibase smart display before leaving the main door.
This shows that the Soli chip can recognize social situations and show relevant results that may help individuals make the right decisions. in this case, Smart displays can recognize the fact that people are out and may need to look up the weather outside.. It is similar to the way humans can communicate with each other nonverbally by understanding the social context.
Other examples include automatically pausing the video when a person moves away from the viewing position, or automatically answering an incoming video call when the recipient glances at the screen. Check out the video just below to see how Soli-based “socially intelligent” displays and tablets work.
While these smart displays and tablets look very useful, nothing has been announced when or when Google will actually make them commercially available. Also, given the issues associated with Soli chipsets (such as implementation costs), these smart displays are unlikely to hit the market in the near future. What do you think about this?
