CEVA and nViso Partner to Bring 3D Facial Imaging and Advanced Emotion Recognition Technology to Mobile Devices

Companies to demonstrate nViso's powerful facial analysis software running on CEVA-MM3101 imaging & vision platform at Mobile World Congress 2014

CEVA, Inc., the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, and nViso, a leading provider of 3D facial imaging technology, today announced that the companies have partnered to develop a solution for mobile devices that includes nViso's unique emotion detection capabilities. The solution combines nViso's facial micro-expression recognition software with the CEVA-MM3101 imaging and vision platform to deliver a broad set of high quality facial analysis functions that utilizes the camera in a smartphone, tablet or any other camera-enabled device. Crucially, the solution consumes a fraction of the power typically required to run these tasks on a CPU, reducing the power consumption by a factor of 50x.
