Description

 

 

The iVM-w is a completely wireless motion tracker without signal & power line restrictions, can be use anywhere, under any lighting condition: outside, office, no lab or simulated environment required.

One of the breakthroughs of the iVM™-w is the Mon-Bus™ wireless protocol; this wireless protocol can be used to real-time talk with multiple motion trackers wireless with low latency.

The iVM-w can be widely used for virtual reality, motion analysis and also other field where low-cost & high-performance 3D orientation measuring is needed.

Performance

The VMSENS device uses multi-inertial sensors to estimate the orientation. The single used gyroscopes to calculate orientation, the drift is inevitable. To compensate for drift completely, the device corrects its orientation using the gravity and the earth magnetic field as reference vectors. The VMSENS iMTFusion™ algorithm can cope with magnetic and accelerations, resulting in a reliable orientation estimate. Additionally, the VMSENS provided a magnetic field calibration routine to correct for hard and soft iron effects.

Graphics card: Any graphics card with DirectX 9 hardware acceleration

 

 

 

Application

Traditional systems for capturing human movement require expensive and fixed infrastructures that define and limit the subject to a specific tracked volume. The VMSENS wireless motion tracker offers a source less solution that allows the subject to move freely in any environment.

In addition to biomechanical studies, motion capture may be used to study how external, psychological factors affect balance, movement ability and performance. The VMSENS motion tracking & analysis system is widely used in the sport science, human motion analysis field, the human motion tracking and analysis results can speed the human motion analysis of and promote the interdisciplinary researches.

Inertial Systems have a primary importance in virtual reality systems. For example, to track head/ arms/legs movements, according to the segment orientation, the virtual reality system can change the view point in order to reflect, in real time, what you are looking at. By moving the sensor in your hand, you can also interact with virtual objects, just as if you hold the object for real.
