Replacing Billions of Hardware Sensors with Virtual Sensors!

For too long, manufacturers have had to be content with costly, space-consuming, design-inhibiting, landfill-stuffing hardware sensors in order to deliver decent mobile and IoT experiences to their customers. No more!

Just one of our software products can deprecate the need for billions of hardware sensors, while simultaneously providing even more features than the original, such as presence, proximity, touchless-gestures, and easier communication capabilities.

Our sensors are a green, non-intrusive solution critical to the market’s digital future!

That’s why leading manufacturers around the globe seek out Elliptic Labs’ sophisticated ultrasound and non-optical software sensors to provide the best experiences for their customers.

Our virtual smart sensors combine AI with input from existing device sensors, and then further enhance it using our proprietary ultrasound and machine learning algorithms to create robust, software-only sensors that achieve results no regular hardware sensor can.

Furthermore, our expertise in Artificial Intelligence allows our virtual sensors to constantly “learn,” improving both their performance and capabilities naturally on the device as well as through over-the-air software updates.

From smartphones to smart homes, from industrial automation to medical technology to connected vehicles, our products are disrupting traditional approaches and making intuitive, sustainable, and eco-friendly experiences possible. When it comes to having a:

Small Form Factor

Low Power Consumption

High Sensitivity

Multi-Sensor Integration

Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Smart Sensor platform is the best solution for the modern world’s needs!
