Elliptic Labs introduced its AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform on the newly released Snapdragon X Elite Compute Platform at the Snapdragon Summit 2023 in Maui. The development represents a considerable step forward in PC computing and AI capabilities. Elliptic Labs’ latest AI software-driven user experiences, showcased during the event, make use of Qualcomm Technologies‘ proficiency in computing and AI performance, particularly in the context of ultra-low power devices.
The Snapdragon X Elite has been designed to bring next-generation AI performance to new laptop designs. The Snapdragon X Elite unlocks improved potential for AI running on the device. Elliptic Labs’ AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform, by using the Qualcomm Sensing Hub, aims to operate with enhanced speed, improved power efficiency, and seamless integration. Furthermore, the Snapdragon X Elite facilitates the continuous operation of the AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform, enabling it to sense even when the host CPU is in deep sleep.
While the AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform will utilise the Qualcomm Sensing Hub on Snapdragon X Elite for ‘state-of-the-art’ performance, customers can also use Elliptic Labs’ expertise in AI/ML, ultrasound, and sensor fusion to deliver AI Virtual Smart Sensors. These AI Virtual Smart Sensors are software-based and deliver critical experiences like human presence detection (HPD), automated external display identification, location, and configuration, and seamless device-to-device connection for frictionless user experience.
The AI Virtual Human Presence Sensor offers HPD functionality, allowing the PC powered by Snapdragon X Elite to detect when a user is present and automatically turn off or on, saving power while increasing security and privacy. The AI Virtual Position Sensor offers the capability to detect the location and automatic configuration of an external display, making the user’s experience seamless when moving between different places. Both the AI Virtual Human Presence Sensor and AI Virtual Position Sensor will be demonstrated at Snapdragon Summit 2023.
“Elliptic Labs and Qualcomm Technologies have collaborated in the past to bring to market some of the most innovative, industry-defining smartphone designs,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO of Elliptic Labs. “It is with this shared history of groundbreaking innovation that Elliptic Labs introduces our AI Virtual Smart Sensor Platform for use with Snapdragon X Elite powered laptops. The exciting, market-redefining Qualcomm Hexagon NPU on the new Snapdragon X Elite processor will enable Elliptic Labs to further extend our AI Virtual Smart Sensors’ capabilities, features, and reach.”
Danielsen added: “Our shared Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers, and subsequently the end-user, will be the biggest benefactors of this collaboration, where together, we will deliver devices that are greener, smarter, and more human-friendly.”
“This collaboration with Elliptic Labs demonstrates the value and power that separate Snapdragon X Elite from the competition,” said Nitin Kumar, a senior director of product management at Qualcomm. “Building on this strong collaboration, our combined efforts will showcase the enhanced AI capabilities, unprecedented connectivity, and broad ecosystem support the Snapdragon X Elite platform offers. With Snapdragon at the core, we will continue to deliver groundbreaking designs and user experiences on upcoming Snapdragon X Elite-powered laptops.”
