Videantis and gestigon bring gesture recognition and skeleton tracking to the automotive market

Hannover and Lübeck, Germany, February 20, 2015 - Videantis and gestigon today announced a partnership that teams videantis’s low-power vision processing IP platform with gestigon’s unique skeleton tracking and gesture recognition algorithms. The videantis and gestigon CEOs sealed the partnership last month at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Besides targeting consumer electronics, the main aim of the cooperation is to bring gesture and pose recognition technology to the automotive market, which is rapidly adopting a wide variety of vision-based technology. More and more image sensors are entering cars, including depth-sensing technologies. These sensors can be used for skeleton tracking inside and around the car. The driver and passenger’s poses, behavior, and signals can be used for “classical” gesture control but also for more advanced, UX-focused comfort and security features.

Hans-Joachim Stolberg, videantis CEO, said, “We're excited to bring gestigon’s unique and accurate skeleton tracking and gesture control to our low-power, high-performance vision platform. gestigon is the global market leader for gesture and skeleton recognition solutions for the automotive industry and we are eager to jointly offer this integrated and optimized solution to our customers.”

“Videantis is the perfect partner for gestigon”, gestigon CEO, Moritz von Grotthuss, confirms. “Their scalable, efficient processor IP already powers millions of cars on the road, and is a great target for low-power implementations of our algorithms that enable an innovative state-of-the-art user experience. The partnership is a perfect match -- both companies excel in their field of work and have already built a significant customer network among global automotive Tier 1s and OEMs.”
