July 11, 2013, Motion Tracking Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—David Troup from Xensr talked about the telemetry needs for extreme sports. This area calls for much more than just adding sensors and an RF link to a person or a piece of equipment. Data for extreme sports have special requirements. The gross quantification of data has [...]

July 11, 2013, Motion Tracking Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—Herbie Kim and Josh Rabinowitz from Articulate described their efforts in integrating sensors into remote patient monitoring and assistance packages. They consider a combination of sensors and stimulators can provide benefits that exceed the contributions of either separately. As the population ages, we are seeing two disparate [...]

July 11, 2013, Motion Tracking Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—Sam Massih from Invensense described the various market segments and applications for wearable sensors. The latest wearable devices are becoming consumer friendly and moving to populations outside the hard-core fitness adherents. Although originally designed for sports training and the elite athletes, the latest activity tracking gadgets are [...]

July 11, 2013, Motion Tracking Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—Jean-Christophe Eloy from Yole Development presented the trends in MEMS and their applications. The mobile space and many consumer devices are now including MEMS. The mobile space, while requiring a full set of sensors, is looking for greater differentiation in their products. This push is driving the [...]

July 11, 2013, Motion Tracking Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—Behrooz Abdi from Invensense the efforts and innovation needed to scale and integrate full platforms for our daily lives. The move towards motion tracking differs from simple motion sensing in requirements for accuracy and stability. The motion sensing market is growing with many more apps becoming available. [...]

January 7, 2013, We talked with Invensense about their newest 9-axis motion tracking device and a new SDK and reference design. The company is looking to tap into the growing market for sensors, possibly hitting over $2.5 B in consumer devices and an additional $2 B in industrial and automotive by 2015. In the mobile [...]

  Invensense MEMS enabled drill the Black & Decker Gyro   January 2013, The International CES event in Las Vegas in currently turning the innovative concepts to natural human interface, into being the default method. Leveraging from the mass world wide market acceptance of the Nintendo Wii for a “no instruction” UI and use model [...]

 June 14, 2012, Invensense Motion Interface Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—James Lim from Invensense detailed the requirements for embedding motion sensors into new applications. Starting with the basics, table 1 indicates the various categories of motion sensors and their primary characteristics.   Table 1: Basic sensor characteristics Sensor Measurement Error Source Accuracy Gyroscope Angular Rate of [...]

 June 14, 2012, Invensense Motion Interface Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—David Borison from Invensense talked about getting the most performance out of a sensor array. Even though gaming seems the most obvious application needing high-performance, many other apps are greatly improved when the developer extracts the most performance from the sensors. Gesture user interfaces are smoother, [...]

 June 14, 2012, Invensense Motion Interface Developers’ Conference, San Francisco—Steve Nasiri from Invensense talked about the new era for motion sensing and the resulting market opportunities arising from the technologies. Motion interfaces are a transformational technology. Comparing technologies, Bluetooth chips about 2.5 billion units per year, WiFi 1.9B, touch 1.4B and motion interfaces are about [...]
