TL; DR: In the modern era, it is difficult to get a good sleep, not because of the rapid advancement of technology and the proliferation of smartphones, which can make us much later than we would like. However, Amazon may have a solution to the sleep deprivation problem. The FCC has allowed the company to produce products that use radar technology to monitor a user's sleep pattern and help control handsfree devices.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) typically enacts laws that prohibit companies from producing and selling consumer devices that have unlicensed radar technology in them. The organization is concerned that allowing unrestricted sales of such products could lead to "harmful interference by authorized users on the [radar] range".
However, the FCC was willing to grant Amazon a waiver. In this case, since it did the same for Google in 2018 with its Pixel smartphone, the Amazon Radar will perform "on the same power and tech standards" as Google. As a benefit of the FCC, Amazon products require a direct connection to the power supply, which limits their mobility, thus offering a "much narrower setup" than Google offered the Pixel.
So, let's get back to the point: What exactly is Amazon creating here? According to the case of the tech giant FCC, the company wants to use the radar technology in two different applications, although they may overlap. The first facilitates "touchless device control," which can help people with speech, touch, or movement problems perform better on other Amazon products.
Of course, there is something to be said for just waiting and seeing what the actual product will look like before. To quickly conclude from all we know, it could take years for Amazon Sleep Tracker to be released, or it could be gone before it's released. Only time will prove it. p>
