Xsens will demonstrate the world’s first wearable 3D body motion tracking system based on consumer grade MEMS sensors at the Las Vegas convention.
Xsens, a leading innovator in 3D motion tracking technology and products, will demonstrate the world’s first wearable 3D body motion tracking system based on consumer grade MEMS combo sensors at the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas. As part of a broader strategy, Xsens now offers IP originally developed for professional (B2B) applications of 3D body motion tracking using wearable motion trackers for mass market application in the consumer electronics industry. Xsens has supplied 3D body motion tracking technology for Hollywood productions such as Ted, John Carter, X-Men, The Avengers and many more.
“In addition to Xsens’ firm commitment to continue to serve our customers in professional movement science, film VFX and game development, we are now reaching out to partners looking to create next-generation consumer experiences using proven wearable 3D body motion tracking technology in sports, fitness, healthcare and gaming,” said Job Elders, SVP of Strategic Alliances at Xsens.
Unlike the first generation wearable technologies like counting users steps and estimating calories, Xsens’ technology enables accurate, real-time tracking of body motion. One or more wearable motion trackers, connected to a smartphone, deliver real-time 3D joint angles, position and velocity.
“What makes this so exciting is that you can take the analysis to the next level,” said Per Slycke, CTO of Xsens. “Instead of measuring that you are moving, or not, we can track how you move. We can deliver the data to help the user understand the motion or technique, in order to understand how to improve. We are helping our customers to innovate and take full advantage of the power of today’s MEMS motion sensors using our unique sensor fusion software.”
