Detailed Description

Update

Canesta is the inventor of revolutionary, low-cost electronic perception technology that is the foundation for the "other side of 3-D" – true 3-D perception as input to everyday devices, rather than the widely-understood 3-D representational technologies as output.

Canesta's 3-D input technology, based upon tiny, CMOS 3-D imaging chips or "sensors", enables fine-grained, 3-dimensional depth-perception in virtually any kind of consumer device such as PCs, TVs, game consoles, and mobile phones, as well as automotive, industrial, and other products. Such products can then react on sight to the actions or motions of individuals and objects in their field of view, gaining levels of functionality and ease of use that were simply not possible in an era when such devices were blind.

Numerous applications are under active development by Canesta's OEM customers and partners, including consumer electronics, PC, TV, building automation, security, robotics, automotive, and others. Such customers and partners include Hitachi, Honda, Optex, Optronic, Quanta, SMSC, and others which have yet to be announced.

Canesta is located in Sunnyvale, CA. The company has filed in excess of fifty patents, 40 of which have been granted so far

The company was founded in 1999 and is based in Sunnyvale, California.
