Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • All of our sales for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were to customers located in the United States, Europe and Asia.
  • The decrease in total net revenues by 10.0% for the year ended December 31, 2020 as compared to 2019 was primarily caused by lower licensing revenues, offset by higher sensor modules sales.
  • License fees were the majority of our total revenue in the past three years and decreased by 23% in 2020 as compared to 2019, primarily due to a 27% decrease in license fees earned from our customer within consumer electronics and 13% decrease in license fees earned from our automotive customers. The decrease is related to the generally slower sales due to the COVID-19 pandemic in combination with declining volumes from aging customer contracts.

Contactless Control Panel
18 Mar 21
A contactless input method for an electronic device or other equipment, including projecting focused light beams from a series of locations along an edge of a control panel including a matrix of controls for an electronic device or other equipment, across a plane in an airspace in front of the controls, whereby the projected light beams traverse an area equal in size to the area of the matrix, detecting reflections of the projected light beams reflected by an object inserted into the plane, identifying which light beams are reflected, further identifying an angle at which the detected light beams are reflected, calculating a location in the plane at which the object is inserted based on the detecting, identifying and further identifying, and outputting the calculated location from the sensor to the electronic device or other equipment as an actuated corresponding location on the control panel.
Interactive virtual display
16 Mar 21
An interactive mid-air display including a display that presents a graphical user interface (GUI), optics projecting and rotating the GUI above the display such that the GUI is visible in-air in a plane rotated away from the display, a sensor including light emitters projecting beams towards the projected GUI, light detectors detecting reflections of the beams by objects interacting with the projected GUI, and a lens structure maximizing detection at each detector for light entering the lens structure at a respective location at a specific angle θ, whereby for each emitter-detector pair, maximum detection of light corresponds to the object being at a specific location in the projected GUI, in accordance with the locations of the emitter and detector and the angle θ, and a processor mapping detections of light for emitter-detector pairs to corresponding locations in the projected GUI, and translating the mapped locations to coordinates on the display.
Optics for Vehicle Occupant Monitoring Systems
25 Feb 21
A focusing optical part, including a plastic body, suitable for being delivered on a tape and reel and mounted on a PCB by an automated mounting machine, the plastic body including a concave mirror including a center aperture input surface through which light enters the plastic body, a convex mirror opposite the center aperture, wherein the concave mirror and the convex mirror form a reflective objective that reflects and focuses the light inside the plastic body, and an exit surface surrounding the convex mirror, through which focused light exits the plastic body.
Optical proximity sensor
23 Feb 21
A sensor including lenses, light emitters, each emitter projecting light out of a lens in a particular emission direction along a detection plane, light detectors, each detector detecting maximum light intensity when light enters a lens at a particular detection angle, a table of hotspots, each hotspot corresponding to an emitter-detector pair, the hotspot being a two-dimensional location in the detection plane along the emission direction of the emitter of the pair where projected light reflected by an object placed at that location, enters the lens for the detector of the pair at the detection angle of the detector, and a processor receiving outputs from the detectors corresponding to detected amounts of projected light reflected by an object in the detection plane, and calculating a two-dimensional location of the object in the detection plane based on the received outputs and based on hotspots for synchronously activated emitter-detector pairs.
Vehicle User Interface
4 Nov 20
A vehicle gesture control system to improve safety and comfort during driving of a vehicle, the vehicle including an adaptive cruise control or autonomous drive arrangement configured to control velocity of the vehicle and distance between the vehicle and another vehicle, the system including a plurality of sensors configured to detect gestures performed by a driver on the surface of a steering wheel grip in the vehicle, the steering wheel grip including a circular tube surrounding a steering wheel, and a processor receiving outputs from the sensors and connected to a memory unit storing instructions for the processor to activate a plurality of features of the adaptive cruise control or autonomous drive arrangement, in response to a respective plurality of different gestures detected by the sensors, one of the gestures including movement of the driver's thumb around a lateral section of the steering wheel grip that faces the driver.
