deal for development of video game controllers, TV and set-top box controllers, virtual reality, and limb and body tracking, SpacePoint Scout’s 9-axis technology allows controllers to deliver the pinpoint accuracy vital for realistic motion tracking. Scout is our first development module to bring top-caliber 9-axis motion tracking technology together in one integrated module — sensors, sensor fusion algorithms, and an I2C interface — ready for quick implementation.
Scout includes a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope; and PNI’s 3-axis geomagnetic sensor that facilitates a constant, repeatable, absolute orientation reference. These nine data points are then fused incorporating a proprietary algorithm using a high-state Kalman filter.
Spacepoint Scout is designed for use in highly dynamic conditions, such as high-speed gaming and remote controls where accuracy is demanded. Applications include robotic maneuvering, limb and body tracking, virtual reality — essentially any application that requires stable and repeatable tracking of physical movement.
The SpacePoint Scout delivers reliability in the real world. More accurate and reliable than standard 6-axis systems, the self-calibrating Scout delivers unbeatably accurate results that stay accurate throughout use in real-world conditions. Self-calibrating, the Scout constantly corrects for gyro drift, magnetic anomalies and other real world interference.
