  • accurate full 360 degrees 3-D orientation output with an angular resolution of 0.05 deg
  • highly dynamic response combined with long-term stability
  • 3-D acceleration, 3-D rate of turn and 3-D earth-magnetic field data
  • all solid-state miniature MEMS inertial sensors inside
  • compact design (38 x 53 x 21 mm, 30 g)
  • high update rate (120 Hz for orientation data)
  • accepts synchronization pulses
  • individually calibrated for temperature, 3-D misalignment and sensor cross-sensitivity

Ekahau’s Wi-Fi based RTLS uses patented software-based algorithms to compute the location of tracked objects, eliminating the need for exciters, choke points, receivers and other proprietary hardware infrastructure. It can easily scale to support tens of thousands of tags on a single server. The Ekahau location protocol enables the wireless location tags to function as any standard Wi-Fi device, and therefore makes two-way communication features between the tags and applications possible, such as visual and audible alerts and two-way text messaging for example. Because the Ekahau system relies on existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, superior tracking accuracy is offered.
The Xsens MTx is a small and accurate 3-DOF orientation tracker. It provides drift-free 3-D orientation as well as temperature (for temperature calibration) and the following kinematic data: 3-D acceleration, 3-D rate of turn and 3-D earth-magnetic field. The MTx has been developed to serve as a measurement unit for orientation measurement of human body segments. With the Xbus Kit, which contains an Xbus Master with a Bluetooth v2.0 (Serial Port Profile) wireless link, it is possible to control even multiple MTx sensor modules, which in turn enables ambulatory measurement of human motion.
Sun SPOTs (Sun Small Programmable Object Technology) are small, wireless, battery-powered devices which have been developed at Sun Labs to explore the next frontier of network computing. These devices can be used in a wide range of applications including robotics, environmental monitoring, asset tracking, proactive health care and many others. Sun SPOTs are powered by a specially designed small-footprint Java virtual machine, called Squawk, that can host multiple applications concurrently, and requires no underlying operating system. Stackable boards include application-specific sensors and actuators such as accelerometers, light detectors, temperature sensors, LEDs, push buttons and general I/O pins. The devices can be duty cycled to run for months on a single charge of their rechargeable battery.
Our 16-channel vibrotactile system is suitable for conducting user studies regarding haptics (or sense of touch). It consists of 16 individual controllable electromechanical coil transducers, mounted on 2 tactor strips.
