High-tech start-up Movea has won a five-year contract to supply its cutting-edge context detection technology to a manufacturer of smartphone and tablet microprocessors. Movea has been trying to break into the context detection market for the past 18 months, and this new contract win, which is expected to generate substantial sales, marks a major step forward.
Movea’s data fusion and motion sensing systems will be integrated into the manufacturer’s mobile devices, enabling them to track a mobile phone user’s physical activity, analyze his surroundings, and locate him by GPS. The data can be processed to provide the user with contextualized information like where he parked his car in an airport parking lot when he gets back from a month-long vacation, for example. Mobile phone applications like these are an extremely high-potential market for Movea.
