- Google has won FCC’s approval for operating its radar-based Project Soli at a higher power level
- The tech could enable users to operate devices using hand gestures
Google has received regulatory approval for continuing with its radar-based motion sensing device called Project Soli. As per a Reuters report, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that it would allow Google to use the Soli sensor at a higher power level than what’s was previously allowed and that it can be used onboard aircrafts as well. Project Soli was announced by Google back in 2015 and it is a gesture-recognition technology which enables one to use finger motion gestures to control devices. The sensor used for the gesture is based on radar and the project came into existence under Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects unit (ATAP).
