Movea, a company specializing in embedded data-fusion software, was acquired by USbased Invensense in 2014 to develop new detection solutions for connected objects, sports and leisure, drones, robotics, and more.
Movea, founded in 2007, boasts a portfolio of more than 600 patents and has established a joint lab with List and Leti. Movea develops embedded software that fuses raw data from multiple sensors (position, acceleration, temperature, and sound) to provide highadded- value information.
When combined with Invensense sensors, Movea software powers a vast range of value-added detection solutions, from instrumentation for Wii-style gaming consoles, GPS assistance, smartphone image stabilizers, computer-assisted athletic training, and attitude control systems for drones.
The Movea-Invensense location in Grenoble counts around 50 employees and is devoted entirely to R&D. The center’s current focus is on context-detection applications that adjust a smartphone’s settings (ring volume, etc.) to the environment.
