Sight-enabled capabilities come to embedded systems


Canesta, a developer of electronic perception technology, has joined the ARM PrimeXsys Community Program and plans to produce a technology that enables electronic devices to “see” by tracking nearby objects in three dimensions in real time.

The first application is a projection keyboard which integrates a three-chip chip set into a wireless device; a full size QWERTY keyboard and mouse will be created by projected beams of light.

The companies say they believe that this design will enable a 'substantial' amount of data to be input in to portable electronic devices and at a speed and accuracy not presently possible.

Canesta has ported its projection keyboard technology to the PrimeXsys platform and wireless device manufacturers using the platform will be able to integrate this capability in to their new devices.
