Wi-Fi solutions provider Quantenna Communications and Aerial Technologies, a provider of wireless motion analytics powered by AI, are bringing the latest in Wi-Fi motion detection technology to the market through a strategic partnership.
This solution integrates Aerial’s AI motion recognition with Quantenna’s Wi-Fi chipsets while maintaining high-performance Wi-Fi. Currently, both companies are jointly working with Tier-1 internet service providers to commercially deploy Aerial’s advanced motion detection and motion recognition services to their end customers.
Aerial’s motion detection solution has operated for thousands of hours in a continuous test with no false positives, simulating over seven years of operation.
Aerial’s solution is a significantly more precise, reliable and affordable solution than other options such as infra-red, video and other radio frequency motion detection, claims the company.
Quantenna’s spatial diagnostics technology allows for rapid collection of precise high-order MIMO channel state information, enabling a higher resolution sensing and detection capabilities.
Leveraging Quantenna’s technology, Aerial machine learning algorithms provide reliable motion detection services in dynamic wireless environments. Through intensive collaborative R&D efforts, Quantenna and Aerial have developed the industry’s first motion detection solution on commercially available Wi-Fi access points, which provides the highest level of detection while maintaining Quantenna’s superior Wi-Fi performance.
Aerial’s patented Wi-Fi AI motion detection and recognition technology consists of two main components: its software agent and its cloud-based AI software. The partnership between the two companies offers new services and improves quality of existing ones in addition to cost-effective advantages for service providers in both hardware use and deployment.
These advantages enable the immediate deployment of many additional value-added services to the end consumers including intrusion detection, elderly monitoring, and home automation. Ultimately, the Aerial solutions allow service providers to increase wallet share and monetize their Wi-Fi infrastructure.
“Wi-Fi is at the center of smart home, and Quantenna is constantly looking for innovative ways to improve customer experience and deliver new services,” said Ambroise Popper, Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Marketing at Quantenna. “Through innovation and integration with Aerial technology, jointly we have enabled the seamless delivery of new critical services such as motion detection within the home.”
“Our technology enables telecom operators to expand their reach into the consumers’ home, to provide convenience and value-added services to their customers, thereby further monetizing their Wi-Fi infrastructure. All this with minimum investment and without using sensors, cameras, or wearables. This offering is the result of a tight collaboration between Quantenna’s and Aerial’s R&D and engineering teams,” says Pascal Paradis-Théberge, Chief Product Officer at Aerial Technologies.
