Elliptic Labs, a global AI software company and the world leader in AI Virtual Smart Sensors™ currently deployed in over 500 million devices today, has signed an expansion software agreement with an existing smartphone customer. The new license agreement will cover Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor™ INNER BEAUTY® being used on several of the customer’s future smartphone releases.
“Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform™ continues to be the go-to solution for the smartphone industry to deliver 100% software-only critical user experiences like proximity detection,” said Elliptic Labs’ CEO Laila Danielsen. “Large smartphone makers choose our AI Virtual Smart Sensors because their power, value, and scalability prove that Elliptic Labs remains the best choice to make their devices greener, smarter, and more human friendly.”
AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY turns off a smartphone’s display and disables the screen’s touch functionality when a user holds the device up to their ear during a phone call. If that capability to detect proximity were missing, a user’s ear or cheek could accidentally trigger unwanted actions during a call, such as hanging up or dialing numbers. Turning off the screen automatically helps conserve battery life as well. Proximity detection is a core capability that is used in all smartphones across today’s market.
Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Proximity Sensor INNER BEAUTY delivers robust proximity detection without the need for a dedicated hardware sensor. By replacing hardware sensors with our software, the AI Virtual Proximity Sensor reduces device cost and eliminates sourcing risk.
