Google wins approval to deploy radar-based motion sensing device

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission allowed Alphabet Inc. unit Google LLC to operate a radar-based motion sensing device, dubbed Project Soli, Reuters reported Jan. 1.

While approving the use of Soli sensors, the agency said the move "will serve the public interest by providing for innovative device control features using touchless hand gesture technology." The approval allows the U.S. search giant to operate the sensors at higher power levels than currently allowed and aboard an aircraft as well.

The Soli sensor reportedly captures motion in a three-dimensional space using a radar beam to allow touchless control of functions or features that can help users with mobility or speech impairments.
