InvenSense, a leading provider of MotionProcessor technology solutions for consumer electronics, has recently announced that the company is all set to showcase its MPU-6000 at the 2011 Mobile World Congress Show. The MPU-6000 is the first 6-axis integrated MotionProcessor which combines the gyroscope and the accelerometer, and includes a built-in Digital MotionProcessing (DMP) hardware accelerator designed to perform 10-axis sensor fusion.
The MPU-6000 is based on MEMS motion sensing technology with an on-board Digital Motion Processor (News - Alert) (DMP) and MPL 3.3 software capable of processing complex 9-axis and 10-axis sensor fusion algorithms. Applications have been developed to improve image quality and video stability, GPS dead reckoning for vehicles, indoor pedestrian navigation, motion-based user interfaces, augmented reality, motion and gesture-based TV remotes, and more immersive gaming experiences. InvenSense will be demonstrating a full suite of the latest developments in Motion Processing solutions across a variety of mobile devices, these include, 10-axis MotionProcessing, 9-axis MotionProcessing Multimedia Experience on Android (News - Alert) Tablets, and AirLock and MotionCommand Technology.
The 10-axis MotionProcessing demonstration includes a demo of the MPU-6000, the world’s first 6-axis single-die MotionProcessor which is essentially the combination of the 3-axis gyroscope and the 3-axis accelerometer, with a built-in 10-axis sensor fusion. The InvenSense 10-axis MotionProcessing solution has been designed to automatically calibrate all sensors, including the compass for accurate heading and pressure sensors for altitude-change detection.
The 9-axis MotionProcessing Multimedia Experience on Android Tablets will lead the consumers to experience 360-degree motion-based panoramic photo viewing with a fine motion control as well as realistic gaming which is an added benefit of the 9-axis MotionProcessing. The AirLock and MotionCommand Technology demonstration includes using an air signature as an alternative to text passcodes, wherein simple and discrete motions can now unlock the phone or enable access to secure applications with a single hand using AirLock. MotionCommand has been designed to detect pre-programmed motion gestures for application control and short-cuts which help to perform tasks faster.
