The all-in-one SpacePoint Scout — perfect for motion tracking prototyping and development.
Ideal for development of video game controllers, TV and set-top box controllers, virtual reality, and limb and body tracking, SpacePoint Scout's 9-axis technology allows controllers to deliver the pinpoint accuracy vital for realistic motion tracking. Scout is the ﬁrst development module to bring top-caliber 9-axis motion tracking technology together in one integrated module — sensors, sensor fusion algorithms, and an I2C interface — ready for quick implementation.
Scout includes a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3-axis gyroscope; and PNI's 3-axis geomagnetic sensor that facilitates a constant, repeatable, absolute orientation reference. These nine data points are then fused incorporating a proprietary algorithm using a high-state Kalman ﬁlter.
Spacepoint Scout is designed for use in highly dynamic conditions, such as high-speed gaming and remote controls where accuracy is demanded. Applications include robotic maneuvering, limb and body tracking, virtual reality—essentially any application that requires stable and repeatable tracking of physical movement.
The SpacePoint Scout delivers reliability in the real world. More accurate and reliable than standard 6-axis IMU systems, the self-calibrating Scout delivers unbeatably accurate results that stay accurate throughout use in real-world conditions. Self-calibrating, the Scout constantly corrects for gyro drift, magnetic anomalies and other real world interference.*
