Xsens delivers full-featured, miniature motion tracking module at low-cost
The communication protocol and API is identical across the entire Xsens product portfolio; making integration of the low cost MTi 1-series, de facto industry standard MTi 10-series and high-performance MTi 100-series easy. Designers can choose from the widest selection of high-performance 3D motion trackers and select the Xsens motion tracker suitable for their design, while re-using validated driver and application code from other projects, dramatically reducing engineering time and risk.
The MTi 1-series is a 12x12x2.5 mm PLCC28-compatible module that can output orientation, acceleration, rate of turn and magnetic field from its I2C, SPI or UART interfaces. The advanced and robust signal processing pipeline, along with the proven XKF3 sensor fusion algorithm, ensures unmatched performance in many applications including robotics, agriculture, heavy machinery, handheld laser scanners and drones. The module’s onboard processing reduces the load on the application processor to lower the overall power consumption of the end system, while consuming less than 45 mW. The MTi 1-series is CE and FCC-certified.
