Cognitive Systems Develops WiFi Motion Software

By Chrissie Cluney May 16, 2018

Are you a consumer with a smart home? Or is your company looking to develop the most updated WiFi motion software for products for smart homes?

Cognitive Systems Corp. has created and is licensing its Aura WiFi Motion software to all companies that are developing products for the smart home such as mesh routers, voice assistants and IoT devices.

The Aura WiFi motion software can allow for advanced motion detection. It also provides contextual awareness and insights to empower smart homes. The WiFi Motion software will work on any 802.11n compatible platform and can be offered as an over-the-air upgrade. With this software, there is no need for additional hardware for new designs or changes required to existing designs.

“As a CES Innovation Honoree, our technology has already been recognized for its outstanding engineering by detecting motion without the need for light or heat sensors,” said Taj Manku, CEO, Cognitive Systems. “This award recognized our own Aura device; now we’re able to scale our Aura WiFi Motion technology to millions of connected devices through a license. Licensed devices such as mesh routers, voice assistants and IoT devices will now be able to access advanced motion detection, and use this information to make decisions based on localization, context and insights for seamless home automation.”

Aura WiFi Motion software utilizes RF, machine learning and artificial intelligence for advanced localization features, which can classify and localize motion. This is accomplished to provide context and awareness that current connected devices lack. Adding Aura WiFi Motion to devices in the smart home builds a sensor network across the home that can take advantage of multiple inputs including motion, sound, touch and other inputs.

If the customer embeds the Aura WiFi Motion software into speakers throughout a home, they will be able to turn on or adjust the volume of music played as people moved from room to room. The Aura WiFi Motion along with the sensor fusion allows smart home devices to make more intelligent decisions and provides end users with improved controls for a seamless smart home experience.

“Our research shows that monitoring activities in the home is highly valued by consumers and Cognitive Systems’ technology enables truly smart monitoring rather than motion sensors that merely send alerts for any type of motion that is detected,” said Bill Ablondi, director of Smart Home Strategies, Strategy Analytics. “A key trend in the market is moving to systems that employ awareness, learning and personalization to usher in the era of the Intelligent Home in which systems can anticipate actions that need to occur. Aura WiFi Motion technology is designed to enable these types of capabilities.”

Aura WiFi motion software will now be licensed by premier WiFi vendors, which include Marvell and Qualcomm. Cognitive Systems is committed to enhancing the experiences of their customers by offering the latest in WiFi motion software development.
