Syntiant Adds Radar to Edge AI Software Solutions for Computer Vision Applications

New Feature Demoed at CES 2024

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syntiant Corp., a leader in edge AI deployment, today announced the addition of radar as a supported sensor-type to its lineup of customizable deep learning models for machine vision applications.  

This new capability broadens the range of use cases leveraging image detection, tracking and classification of events and objects utilizing Syntiant’s edge AI algorithms, which are increasingly under deployment across a spectrum of consumer and commercial devices, including security and IP cameras, 360/VR cameras, video doorbells, vehicles and other areas.  

“The addition of radar continues to enhance our off-the-shelf machine learning models, while increasing reliability and accuracy of visual applications,” said Kurt Busch, CEO of Syntiant. “We look forward to showcasing this new feature at CES and highlighting our expanding suite of turnkey offerings for our diverse range of customers.”

Syntiant’s deep learning models are now utilizing radar-based sensors for fall detection, an application the company first proved and defined with optical sensors. Radar provides several key advantages over traditional optical sensors, including consistent performance under any lighting condition and enhanced security and privacy.

“Syntiant’s new radar-based capabilities are exciting because they enable a broad range of high value in-home applications where privacy is key,” said IC Lin, senior associate vice president at Tawain-based Foxconn, one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturers.

Syntiant’s field-proven, highly accurate computer vision models solve critical problems directly on compute-constrained embedded devices, interpreting the visual world with the highest accuracy and lowest latency, supporting a broad range of applications in smart homes, personal devices, vehicles and factories, among other use cases.
