Freescale will demo various technologies that run on the company's i.MX 6 lineup of ARM Cortex A9 processors at the CES this year. These technologies include the wireless battery charging, gaze tracking, augmented reality for the home medical systems and home energy management.
The company hopes the gaze tracking to become the next step in the user interfaces that is beyond the gestures. This expectation might be true as Tobii is also performing a demo on the same technology at the CES.
The wireless battery charging will manage the power delivery while it is communicating with the device that is being charged in an intelligent manner. With the advanced home energy management, the consumers can control the home energy consumption. It also helps the utility companies to manage the grid loads and to prevent the power demands.
Last but not the least, the augmented reality for the home medical systems make use of a camera that can identify pill boxes and cover the useful information like when the next dosage must be taken. We shall wait for these demos and see how they work very soon.
