Radar sensing

Using radar-on-chip sensors such as Google Soli and machine learning algorithms we explore the world of microgestures. The goal is to build systems that can: (i) sense hand and finger gestures in order to enable inconspicuous, precise and flexible object oriented interactions with everyday objects; (ii) enable sensing even in situations where the sensor is occluded by materials (e.g. phone in pocket or a leather bag); and (iii) perform sensing with low energy consumption.
