SoftKinetic Renamed to Sony Depthsensing Solutions

PRNewswire: Two years after its acquisition, SoftKinetic becomes Sony Depthsensing Solutions.

"This transition is the culmination of our work as a Sony subsidiary over the past couple of years," states Softkinetic CEO Akihiro Hasegawa. "We are honored of becoming an integral part of the world's leading image sensing company, and we will continue working towards the integration of our DepthSense technology into products for mobile, robotics, and automotive industries worldwide."

"We have great expectations for depth sensing technology," explains Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation Senior General Manager, Satoshi Yoshihara, "as we continue expanding the realm of senses for machines by enabling them with human-like sight."

A compelling achievement in this area has been the integration of DepthSense technology and gesture recognition software into premium vehicles and is the recent integration of DepthSense camera module and software designed by the Brussels-based company into Sony's new Entertainment Robot "aibo".
