Miniature gyroscopes and accelerometers chips are increasingly integrated into electronic devices, but accurate motion sensing is still mostly reserved for professional applications like elite athletic monitoring, physical rehabilitation, aerospace or robotics. There are very few commercially available systems leveraging the benefits of real time analysis of movement and Web 2.0 technologies. To fill this gap, Sensaris (http://www.sensaris.com) is introducing the MoveIt Senspod, a 6 axis wireless wearable motion sensor.
The sensor is one of the smallest commercially available wireless unit packed with high sampling rate 3 axis accelerometer, 3 axis gyroscope and GPS. The built-in Bluetooth EDR radio makes it the ideal mobile phone or PC companion.
Its credit card size and light weight enable a wide spectrum of daily life uses as it leaves complete freedom of movement while simultaneously measuring speed, acceleration, rotation, twist, distance and position. Place the MoveIt Senspod on objects or on your body to optimize your own sports performance, explore augmented reality or challenge your friends in new urban games.
Data exploitation for online/offline analysis, coaching or even social network based challenges is done using web technologies. The provided API and platform independent SDK lets programmers develop innovative consumer applications in their favorite environment to quickly bring them to market. By just requiring a Bluetooth serial profile, the MoveIt is compatible with a very wide installed base of mobile devices.
"Our customers have been telling us for several years that they were looking for comfortable, easy and fun ways to enhance their experience. The combination of the MoveIt Senspod with our SensNet real time communication platform opens up exciting sensor uses not only in gaming, sports or fitness but also in high growth segments such as gesture recognition or ambient assisted living."
