SAN JOSE, Calif. -- May 13, 2013

Sensor Platforms today announced that its FreeMotion™ Library of sensor fusion
software is now ported to, and optimized for, the NVIDIA® Tegra® 4 mobile
processor reference platform, and is available for licensing by smartphone and
tablet makers.

Tegra 4 delivers record-setting performance and battery life to flawlessly
power smartphones and tablets, gaming devices, auto infotainment and
navigation systems. Tegra 4’s 72-custom NVIDIA GPU cores and a quad-core ARM
Cortex-A15 CPU offer lightning-fast web browsing, stunning visuals and new
camera capabilities through computational photography.

The FreeMotion Library now combines and processes data from installed sensors
in Tegra 4 smartphones and tablets to better interpret users’ movements and
situations, thereby inferring users’ intents. The software is sensor agnostic,
enabling OEMs topurchase their sensors from multiple suppliers, and also
optimizes sensor power consumption to enable longer battery life.

“Our software is fully integrated into NVIDIA’s powerful mobile processor
platform,” said Dan Brown, CEO of Sensor Platforms. “Manufacturers who utilize
the Tegra 4 reference design can license our FreeMotion Library with full
confidence of compliance.”

Neil Trevett, vice president of mobile content  at NVIDIA, said: “The
FreeMotion Library produces an exceptionally high quality combined sensor data
stream at low power levels. This enables application developers to tap the
full sensory potential of mobile devices without being deep sensor fusion
experts. Sensor Platforms then kicks things to the next level by generating
true context awareness – so that applications can engage users through
real-time insights into how the device is being used, carried and stored.”

This announcement follows recent news that the FreeMotion Library has been
selected as a finalist for the EE Times and EDN 2013 Annual Creativity in
Electronics (ACE) Awards in the category of Ultimate Products - Sensors.

About Sensor Platforms Inc (

Sensor Platforms is a venture-financed company located in Silicon Valley that
develops, for licensing, algorithmic software enabling consumer applications
to better understand user contexts and intent.

The company’s FreeMotion™ Library makes sensor fusion and user context
awareness available in smartphones and tablets, in order to: combine and
process data from installed sensors and microprocessors; better interpret
users’ movements and situations; and infer users’ intents.

The library makes it easy for device OEMs to purchase their sensors and
microprocessors from multiple suppliers without damaging user experience. It
also automatically optimizes sensor and platform power consumption based on
user movement and contexts, to enable longer battery life.

To create the breadth of the FreeMotion library, the company has assembled a
multi-disciplinary engineering team with proven track records in control
systems, machine learning, mixed signal design, motion kinematics, real-time
systems, semiconductor device physics, and signal processing.

The company is located at 2860 Zanker Road, #210, San Jose, CA 95134. For
