LIDAR, radar, low orbit satellites, stereoscopic cameras and other 3D sensors are being used to provide environmental data for machine learning in an almost unlimited number of purposes and applications. Applications that can make society safer, more productive and sustainable.
Sensor technology is rapidly evolving to make low cost, personal devices a reality. This democratisation of data collection is putting the originator – potentially the consumer – at the heart of the process as the owner of the information. It is becoming viable for organisations to create their own models of the world through crowd-sourced sensor information from their machine products and customers.
Our vision is that by developing smart software, the true power of hardware sensor technology can be utilised to its full potential.
Smarter software can deliver real-time solutions, which are of vital importance in applications such as threat or hazard detection or autonomous vehicle guidance.
Smarter software can massively reduce data transmission, storage and computing power requirements, which is key to reducing energy requirements and battery consumption for mobile and IoT applications. These efficiencies reduce costs so that new technology deployment can be economically viable at a mass scale.
Smarter software can deliver solutions “on device” which is essential in mission critical technology in aerospace, autonomous vehicle or security and defence applications.
