MetaMotion Sensors


Add motion, direction and orientation sensing to your project or product with this high precision sensor.

The MetaMotion sensors include the classic 3-axis accelerometer, which can tell you which direction is down towards the Earth (by measuring gravity) or how fast the board is accelerating in 3D space. The other is a 3-axis magnetometer that can sense where the strongest magnetic force is coming from, generally used to detect magnetic north. The third is a 3-axis gyroscope that can measure spin and twist. The fourth is the barometric pressure sensor which is an altimeter that can sense position from sea level down to 1 meter of accuracy.

A complete 9-axis fusion solution is available which combines the measurements from the gyroscope, magnetometer, and accelerometer, to provide a robust absolute orientation vector. The orientation information is provided in the form of quaternion or Euler angles; this includes algorithms for offset calibration of each sensor, monitoring of the calibration status and kalman filter fusion to provide distortion-free and refined orientation vectors.

The MetaMotion series sensors come in a variety of form-factors and sensor choices.

The C series are round and coin cell powered. The R series are rectangular and powered by a micro-USB rechargeable lithium battery. The MetaMotion comes with extra memory.

The board is controllable using your Smartphone. Use the MetaBase App to get started, connect to your sensor, stream or download sensor data from memory.

Stick the sensor to a golf club and calculate the speed of your swing and the number of swings you took in the last 18 holes. Clip it to your tshirt and turn the sensor into a posture corrector.
