Technology

Inuitive’s holistic NUI technology will open up a world of possibilities in how we interact not just with each other, but with objects as well. This is why we are dedicated to developing today’s most innovative Natural User Interface (NUI) technologies in the personal computing world.

The NU3000 is a multi-core NUI Co-Processor ASIC optimized for fast and accurate image capturing and computer vision algorithm processing. The M3 optical front-end is based on -”Off the Shelf” low cost optical components technology from leading optical partners.

Based on years of collective experience, we have developed a high precision 3D Depth Engine based on our proprietary Assisted Stereoscopy technology. This 3D technology is accurate enough to support fine finger tracking capability. It performs in extreme lighting conditions – from dim indoor lights to intense outdoor daylight.

Gesture Recognition
Our technology is able to accurately identify movements of the human body and communicates the data for various types of applications.

Fine-finger Tracking
Our finger tracking technology tracks your fingers with a camera in a way unlike any other – with pinpoint precision and accuracy.

Face Detection and Recognition
Our Face Detection and Face Recognition technology can effectively identify the user’s face out of a large data base. The exceptional accuracy of recognition is, in large part, thanks to combining 2D and our 3D Depth Engine.

Head Orientation & Eyes Gaze Tracking
Our own Eyes Gaze Tracking algorithm can pinpoint user’s gazing with high precision.

Expression Recognition
We can track and communicate even subtle facial expressions thanks to our advanced use of 3D imaging.

Audio Solutions
In addition, we work with selected partners who specialize in providing state of the art Speech Recognition and Audio Noise Suppression solutions.

 

Product

In today’s highly technological world, many solutions attempt to mimic human communication when interfacing digital electronic devices such as note-books, tablets and mobile phones.  At Inuitive, we have taken this technology to the next level by designing and producing a high-quality Multi-core NUI co-processor that is powerful enough to ensure excellent user-experience combing all known NUI technologies (gesture, gaze, head tracking etc) without impacting concurrent tasks that run on the main processor.

Although we develop a full solution in-house, we offer an open architecture that allows the customer to customize by embedding their own technology as well as integrate additional application layers that will be executed on our co-processor to be isolated from the main processor’s timing constraints.

NU3000

The NU3000 ASIC is the heart of Inuitive’s M3 Reference Design module.

The NU3000 Multi-Core NUI Co-Processor ASIC includes:

• Two CEVA MM3101 Image Signal Processors (ISPs)

• Inuitive Proprietary Computer Vision  hardware accelerators

• ARM Cortex A5  plus Neon Vector Processor (ample processing power  is available for third party’s NUI software execution)

In addition, the NU3000 supports “Open CV” commands.

M3 reference design

M3 is a complete reference design module that contains all electro-optical components, including the Inuitive NU3000 Computer Vision optimized processor, power management and all other electronics.

The module contains the following elements:

• NU3000 Multi-Core NUI Co-Processor ASIC

• DDR

• A stereoscopic pair of RGB + IR Compact Camera Modules ( for Real time generation of 3D depth images)

• Another RGB Compact Camera Module as a standard Web-Cam

• Microphone

• ILM100 – A compact IR illumination module

• All other electronic parts including on-board PMU (Power Management Unit)

The module operates on a single 3.3V power source and communicates to the host processor via USB 3.0 interface (USB 2.0 backwards compatible), and MIPI 2.0 interface. This compact module size (90x10x4 mm) is designed to fit Notebooks and Tablets. Smaller modules can be designed for integration in small screen tablets and smartphones as well.
