TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

This innovation provides an easy to use, accurate wearable motion tracking and digitalization technology. Healthcare, sport, work, and in basically every field objective data acquisition and its comparison to reliable data from other sources is required to make the right decisions. The proposed product brings the essence of digitized motion, which is needed for next generation movement-based applications.

TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS

The wearable sensor set contains a central HUB unit and up to 16 sensor units.

The sensors include accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. The sensors are providing processed data to the HUB, which can transfer it to the users' device via fast WiFi connection. The HUB does not necessarily have to be worn by the user, but it shall be within Bluetooth range (a few meter). It is very small and easy to carry.

Sensor specifications:

  • Accelerometer ± 32g
  • gyroscope ±4000 deg/s
  • ± magnetrometer 1300 uT
  • output data rate up to 800Hz
  • housing is IP68 protected

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS

The main area of application is in sport and healthcare, but there are several use cases in the biomechanical, media, industrial and education fields as well.

In the field of sports such sensors are typically used by professional athletes and other sportsmen who track and analyse their movement with high precision in real time. It is also used by personal trainers to track their students during training sessions. By analyzing the data collected from the sensor system, the result helps to improve technique, prevent injury, and enhance performance.

In healthcare, movement tracking can be used for validating rehabilitation treatment or follow-up with patients after implant placement.
Movement capture and digitalization is also used in the movie industry, military training and factories to analyse the movement of workers for insurance and safety purposes or boosting efficiency. It is also suitable for animal and other non-human movement analysis. 

Market Trends & Opportunities

Market size: the non-optical 3D motion capture system market size is estimated to 60 M USD, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15%. The product from this innovation is a high-end, very accurate sensor set that can be manufactured at a very affordable price.

Benefits

  • High frequency output data rate of 500 – 800 Hz enabling very precise measurement data.
  • Improved accuracy compared to consumer grade accuracy
  • Popular websocket protocol, and easily accessible file-structure in the HUB.
  • Developer friendly interface to empower software engineers to create new applications for the sensor.
