“Motion sensing may be the technology advancement that defines the next decade,” says Taj Manku, CEO of Cognitive Systems.
Interactive motion gaming exploded after the release of the Nintendo Wii in 2006. It led a springboard of innovation in augmented and virtual reality gaming. But, if you owned a Wii, you’ll recall a plethora of frustration due to lag, limited range of motion and flying nunchuk remotes.
“Technology has come a long way since then,” assures Manku, “Motion sensing is taking forms that are more natural, intuitive and user-friendly.”
Consumers are starting to become accustomed to everyday motion-sensing conveniences -- porch lights that switch on automatically, automatic doggy doors, and car trunks that open with a foot wave.
WiFi Motion® is unique because it doesn’t require you to buy a separate hardware sensor. It uses your existing WiFi and WiFi-enabled IoT devices to turn your entire home into a motion sensor. Wait… motion sensing without having to buy any sensors? That’s right. WiFi Motion could be the next significant innovation to advance the smart home industry.
“We have developed a new way to see, interpret and use WiFi signals,’ says Manku, “We are repurposing tech (WiFi) for new uses that make a difference in people’s lives.”
Founded in 2014, Cognitive Systems Corp. began with the goal of changing the way wireless is used. The founders drew on their extensive expertise in silicon design, radio frequency RF sensing and encryption, to build a Wi-Fi technology that would be essential for the smart home market - The result, WiFi Motion was born.
