NOVELIC Receives the US Patent Grant for Gesture Sensor

NOVELIC is proud to announce the US Patent Grant award for gesture sensor application:

“Millimeter-wave radar sensor system for the gesture and movement analysis” – United States Patent No. 10,928,499 on February 23, 2021.

A new patent-granted invention in our portfolio is a gesture sensor system based on mm-wave radar. It covers apparatus and method of operation for a simple system for detection of class of gestures based on a 2D angle detection. Low-cost and robust gesture sensing solutions are required for a variety of industrial, consumer, and automotive applications. Preferable addressing non-licensed 60 GHz radio frequency band, miniature mm-wave radar sensor-based solutions offer gesture sensing outperforming TOF sensor in robustness, with affordable pricing. Moreover, the same mm-wave radar sensor hardware constellation can be simultaneously used for detecting life, measuring the distance to objects, and detecting vibrations and vital signs, performing child presence detection (CPD) and seatbelt reminder (SBR) functions.
