Gesture-controlled in-ear headphone by Acconeer, Imagimob and OSM Group soon ready for commercialization

As announced last year, Acconeer, Imagimob and OSM Group are working together on gesture-controlled in-ear headphones. A working prototype will be available in Q1 2021, and the platform is soon ready for commercialization. Selected customers can now schedule exclusive demos of the prototype.

Gesture control is a perfect fit for in-ear headphones, since the earbud is small and not visible for the user, which makes physical buttons difficult to use. With the small footprint of Acconeer's A1 radar sensor, and the efficient AI software by Imagimob, it is possible to get it into a device as small as the in-ear headphone.

The project combines Imagimob AI SaaS solution and its world-leading expertise in Edge AI with Acconeer's high-accuracy, low-power radar sensor in a hardware designed and manufactured by OSM Group. The aim is to provide a solid platform targeting headphone companies looking to bring gesture-control into in-ear headphones to the market in a short time, while keeping accuracy and robustness high. However, the software and hardware platform developed in the project can also be used in a wide range of other electronic devices to implement gesture control.

Gesture control and touchless user interfaces has become a hot topic as the pandemic has swept over the world. The touchless gesture control market is primarily driven by factors such as rising hygiene consciousness and low maintenance cost. Touchless interfaces in addition to gesture controls are becoming widely popular as they provide the abilities to interact with devices without physically touching them.

The project is part of the strategic innovation program Smarter Electronic Systems - a joint investment by Vinnova, Formas and Swedish Energy Agency.

Imagimob and Acconeer are both showcasing at the all-digital CES 2021 January 11-14.
