Wave hello to Soli.
Soli is a miniature radar that understands human motions at various scales: from the tap of your finger to the movements of your body.
The language of nonverbal communication.
Soli aims to understand the nuances of human movements so that we can use our natural body language and gestures as a form of input. We created an interaction framework that groups human movements according to levels of proximity and engagement between the user and Soli: aware, engaged and active. The framework is based on regular human nonverbal communication models.
Soli technology in Pixel 4. Introducing Motion Sense ™
Our team has introduced the Soli chip, platform and interaction model to the Pixel 4 phone. The Soli sensor is located at the top of the phone, creating an interactive hemisphere that can sense and understand movements around the phone¹.
Pixel 4 will be the first device with Soli, powering Motion Sense which allows you to skip songs, snooze alarms and silence phone calls, without touching your phone.
These capabilities are just the start, and just as Soli technology improves over time, Motion Sense will evolve as well. Motion Sense will be available in select countries².
