Panasonic might have a hard time figuring out its strategy to move ahead in the handset market, but the company's ambition to do something innovative remains widespread and active.
The firm has developed a new innovative optical LED identification technology for the smartphone.
Dig Info has released a nice video in which Panasonic is showcasing a new technique for encoding information through LED light sources. Basically, the technology uses an LED light source to allow a smartphone to read optical ID signals coming off something, notes Japan Trends.
All you need to point the phone towards an item and the handset will be able to read it. With such advance software technique, users will be offered details about availability, the quality of the material making up the product, and other valuable information.
As the published report notes, "while this concept is not new per se, Panasonic has enhanced the speed to be hundreds of times faster than previous systems and no longer require fluctuation brightness visible to the human eye."
Panasonic is expected to bring the technology to the mainstream market in 2016, and we expect the firm will license the technology to other key handset manufacturers.
