Finding iNEMO¹

Speaking of accelerometers, STMicroelectronics thinks their multi-axis, multi-sensor accelerometer is smarter than what your regular one (or paper one) can do. It combines data from 3 multi-axis readings that is better suited for applications requiring more data than can be provided by just one MEMS.

For many current applications, such as freefall detection, screen rotation or pedometers, a single MEMS accelerometer meets their system requirements. However, a new class of advanced applications is emerging, for example: location-based services, enhanced motion-based gaming, pedestrian dead-reckoning for indoor and multi-floor navigation, robotics or human-body tracking.

1) Ah, the kitschy titles. Can’t help myself. It just comes to me.

I’ve been following the AR concept for a couple of years and, sorry to say, mainstream applications/adaptations of this technology have not spread as quickly as some people were hoping, but I still find creative uses and new implementations popping up on the web all the time that makes me think we’re getting there. Soon. Bang. Zoom. Read the rest of this entry »
