Ms Eugenia Chen, Senior Product Manager – Qualcomm Topic: Strategies for Sensor Data Processing
Multiple and diverse sensors on consumer electronic devices are common today. These sensors enable a better user experience; however, the rising demands on battery life, processing power, and cost are key concerns when sensors are always running in the background. In addition to the mobile market, Qualcomm is using its Qualcomm All-ways Aware™ Hub to minimize such costs and power usage to create a high level of performance within the wearable and asset-tracking segments. The Hub has a higher process power than regular MCU and has the capability for power optimization. Meanwhile, Qualcomm is seeing different challenges surface from Smart Home implementation, such as duplicated sensors that raise device cost or multiple clouds which not only raise the cost but also create trouble on maintenance. While there are many visible methods proposed for streamlining Smart Home implementation, Qualcomm is committed to finding the most suitable solution.
