Every aspect of modern day technology is getting more and more intelligent and motion tracking is another one of these areas. Xsens has recently expanded its range of miniature low cost motion tracking technology to include an addition to the state of the art MTi 1 product. The new series of products is a standout development to the Xsens product line because it has self-contained 3D IMU/VRU/AHRS motion tracking modules for high volume industrial and prosumer applications.
Another one of the great benefits of the MTi 1 series is it has a very low cost of production, this means that its ideal for mass production and use on a wide scale. On top of this it is also state of the art technology the MTi 1 series delivers a dynamic accuracy of 1 deg RMS for roll and pitch, making them the most accurate 3D motion trackers in their class.
Take a look at this video below that truly shows exactly what the product is capable of.

Not only is the new product from Xsens incredibly low cheap and reliable it is also industry standard taking into account that it is the de facto standard within the industry means that it won’t only work with any other MTi series products but also a whole host of other motion tracking technologies out there. This compatibility with other technologies means that when people are designing devices with motion tracking within them the MTi 1 series they can use the same application code and validated drivers, will of course dramatically reduce the risk of project and reduce the need for reengineering.
Please see the quote below from the Xsens site if you are thinking about purchasing some of their latest products:
