From the entertainment and gaming industry to industrial and medical fields, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are expanding the possibilities for visual immersion. AR is the technology that adds digital objects to the real world experience. It does not create a virtual world but overlays the real world view with computer generated graphics. VR, on the other hand, allows people to experience an emulated, virtual world, as well as see virtual life-sized 3D images within it and to interact with them. VR completely shuts out reality. Both AR and VR technologies share the common need to have an autonomous wearable product that is able to sense the actions of the user and understand the surrounding environment to display images in real time.
ST provides range of products suitable for different AR/VR device designs. Key products include Bluetooth & NFC connectivity solutions, motion, environmental and proximity sensors, MEMS microphones, power management, and an array of microcontrollers.
