Movidius Works With Google to Bring Visual Awareness to the Next Wave of Intelligent Mobile Apps

Myriad 1 Vision Processor Platform to Power Latest Android Smartphone Development Kit

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/20/14 -- Movidius, the leader in vision processor technology for mobile and portable devices, today announced that it is working with Google to create intelligent vision-based applications beyond the capability of today's mobile devices. As part of the agreement, Movidius' Myriad 1 vision processor platform will power Project Tango, an Android-based smartphone product/development kit within Google's Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group.

Myriad 1 is the first generation of the Movidius Vision Processor Platform, a new ultralow power, high-performance and programmable architecture of computational chips, software and development tools that enables a range of devices to intelligently understand and contextualize their surroundings. From smartphone, tablets, wearable and even robotics -- Movidius can deliver up to 10 times more flexibility, processing speed and power efficiencies compared to traditional processors.

"Project Tango strives to give mobile devices a human-like understanding of space and motion through advanced sensor fusion and computer vision, enabling new and enhanced types of user experiences -- including 3D scanning, indoor navigation and immersive gaming," said Johnny Lee, Technical Program Lead, Advanced Technology & Projects at Google. "Movidius has provided a key component towards enabling access to these features in a small mobile platform with a chip designed with visual sensing and battery life in mind. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Movidius as these new applications evolve and new device designs come to market."

By mapping space and motion in real time with detailed precision and accuracy, Myriad 1 aims to mirror human vision with a newfound level of depth, clarity and realism on mobile and portable connected devices. Myriad 1 will serve as the architecture for application developers and device designers looking to power the next wave of intelligent applications that leverage mobile sight and perception for an engaging user experience.

"Google has paved the future direction for smart mobile vision systems and we're excited to be working with a company that shares our vision to usher in the next wave of applications that fundamentally alter how a mobile device is used to experience the world around us," said Remi El-Ouazzane, CEO of Movidius. "Project Tango is truly a groundbreaking platform, and we look forward to seeing the innovation the developer community achieves with unprecedented access to the Movidius Vision Processor."

Myriad 1 is available to qualified customers and software ecosystem partners now. Information can be obtained directly from Movidius.
