AdHawk Microsystems’ Tiny Sensors May Enable New Generation of Immersive Experiences

(VentureBeat) AdHawk Microsystems announced that it has created small motion-tracking sensors that could be a boon for augmented reality glasses and virtual reality headsets. AdHawk has created eye-tracking sensors that are small chips made from microelectrical mechanical systems (MEMS), which are commonly used in gyro chips. Current AR and VR products are oversized for consumers, and bulky camera-based sensors are a big part of that problem.
The Canada-based company has raised $4.6 million in a funding round led by Intel. AdHawk Microsystems said that its smaller, faster, more power-efficient motion-tracking solutions will render camera-based eye tracking obsolete. And they will pave the way for a new generation of highly immersive AR/VR experiences.
