Inertial measurement units (IMUs)

We provide accurate and reliable 3D orientation, acceleration, rate of turn, and magnetic field data. For human–machine interaction (HMI) purposes, IMUs can be used as a standalone product or with multiple synchronized IMUs.


The MTw Awinda kit contains a number of 3D motion trackers of your choice plus a software development kit (SDK). The SDK makes it possible to access the 3D orientation, acceleration, rate of turn, and magnetic field data of every motion tracker. The MTw Awinda is a flexible solution that enables you to choose how many MTw’s you want to integrate into your application, thanks to a unique wireless radio protocol that takes care of a very accurate time synchronization of less than 10 microseconds.


Capturing a machine interaction

The Xsens motion capture solutions tailored for research provide motion capture for human movement without constraining freedom of movement and without occlusions. The fast set-up and calibration allow for data acquisition within 10 minutes. The software is capable of outputting and live streaming human kinematic data and raw motion tracker data, allowing for real-time control of robots, exoskeletons, and humanoids. Low latency is extremely important for the live streaming of joint position, accelerations, angular velocity, 3D orientation, and center of mass. These metrics are directly available within the software.



MTw Awinda and full-body motion capture solution MVN enable the user to (live)stream 3D kinematic or IMU data to their own application. This data allows users to apply typical HMI techniques such as posture recognition, motion classification, motion segmentation, motion learning models, motion synchronization, command recognition, and activity level recognition.
