9-axis motion tracking development module for immersive gaming

Julien Happich -December 02, 2012

PNI Sensor's SpacePoint Scout development module offers gaming application developers 9-axis motion tracking technology in one reasonably priced, 25.4x25.4x16.0mm integrated module.

The unit includes a suite of sensors (a 3-axis gyroscope, a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis geomagnetic sensor), highly proven sensor fusion algorithms and an I2C interface for quick implementation. SpacePoint Scout comes with the RM3000 geomagnetic sensor, using PNI Sensor's proprietary magneto-inductive technology that offers over 15 times better resolution and 16 times less noise than commonly used Hall effect magnetic sensors.

The RM3000, in conjunction with the SpacePoint Scout's sensor fusion algorithms, enables highly accurate pointing and motion tracking even in the presence of magnetic anomalies. The module operates from 3.8 to 10VDC and can operate up to 921,600 baud.
