Complexity and Context: Key Challenges of Multisensor Positioning
The next generation of navigation and positioning systems must provide greater accuracy and reliability in a range of challenging environments. No single navigation technology is robust enough, so a multisensor solution is required. read more

ABI Research: MEMS Sensors and Hands-Free Interfaces Will Revolutionize Mobile Devices

November 11, 2013By

Accelerometers, gyroscopes, near field communications (NFC), and gesture recognition are predicted to be the big winners in mobile devices. These mobile technologies are projected to make the greatest penetration gains over the coming years, according to a recent study by market intelligence firm ABI Research. “Hands-free operation or gesture recognition is soon going to become a key differentiator in high-end... read more
