Origin Wireless Turns Popular Mesh Routers Into Smart Sensing Stations
Origin Wireless™ today announced its collaboration with ASUS® to deliver artificial intelligence (AI) enabled Wi-Fi by porting its patented Time Reversal Machine™ (TRM) to the popular ASUS Lyra wireless mesh routers based on the Qualcomm® Mesh Networking Platform, as to be demonstrated at COMPUTEX 2018.
Origin's award-winning TRM uses commonly available wireless signals to enable locationing, tracking, motion detection, human breathing monitoring, well-being monitoring, gesture recognition, fall-down detection and home security, all without wearables and cameras. TRM can achieve the world’s highest precision (1-2cm), infrastructure-free, low complexity, low latency and robust indoor tracking, especially in non-line-of-sight.
"TRM works practically seamlessly with mesh routers to leverage wireless multipaths as virtual antennas/sensors to monitor the environment and achieve smart radios for smart life™," said Dr. Ray Liu, CEO of Origin Wireless; "The Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform has the flexibility and processing capabilities to enable simple integration of TRM with popular mesh routers, such as ASUS Lyra, to turn them into AI-enabled Wi-Fi systems, delivering a smart sensing station of the future. Once TRM is installed, additional TRM tools can be remotely deployed with ease through a software upgrade."
"Qualcomm Technologies has led the transition to home mesh Wi-Fi with its innovative mesh networking platform powering the vast majority of announced retail mesh networking products to date, bringing advanced in-home connectivity and redefining customer experiences," said Gopi Sirineni, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "Our work with Origin Wireless and ASUS will bring to market a powerful AI-sensing solution that leverages the advanced processing capabilities of our platform."
"ASUS is glad to work with Origin Wireless and Qualcomm to implement TRM technology on our new generation mesh networking product Lyra," said Tenlong Deng, General Manager of ASUS Networking and Wireless Devices Business Unit; "Lyra is an AI-enabled WiFi device for consumers to monitor their home and be notified. Lyra will be able to perform as a surveillance system when consumers are not at home, and can notify parents when kids arrive home from school. Besides the motion and surveillance functions, numerous new exciting smart applications such as breathing detection and well-being monitoring will be available soon from ASUS mesh networking products."
