Project Soli

We designed and developed feasible prototypes for Google ATAP's new interaction sensor using radar technology. The sensor is now embedded in the current iteration of Google's Nest Thermostat and the Pixel 4 smartphone, and maybe in things I don't know.

We were brought in from the get-go and worked with different versions of the evolving sensor. Going beyond renderings, we created feasible use cases and working prototypes using the chip and trained these machines to work with self-designed gesture sets, getting back real actionable data to further improve the sensor.
