Motion tracking sensors

2M created a state-of-the-art development platform for the analysis and reporting of human kinematics. The platform features high-accuracy wearable inertial sensors, called NODES, an easy-to-integrate mobile API/SDK for Unity and Matlab and community support from 2M experts.

Modular – optimize for your application 

Nodes represents a new class of highly-scalable, low-latency real-time wireless inertial and orientation sensors. Solutions can consist of 1 upto 20 NODES depending on your application needs.

9DOF Motion Tracking Sensors for Sports

Key features

REAL-TIME

Real-time motion information

MODULAR

Scalable solutions from 1-20 NODE sensors

LOW LATENCY FOR VR

Maximal 30ms latency between movement and reaction in the VR game (tested in Unity)

WIRELESS

Using Bluetooth wireless technology

Mobile AR/VR applications

Using the latest MEMS sensor technology available, NODES is specifically designed for fine-grained, low power, mobile motion capture with extreme low latency required for Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications.

MEMS technology

Each NODE features a complete set of 3-D digital sensors, offering 9 DOF sensor data: acceleration, turn rate (gyroscope) and magnetic field intensity (compass). Full 3-D orientation information, expressed as quaternions, is also made available to the user. Users can also select the raw data rate mode.

The NODES network

A network comprises tens of devices that sample and transmit motion and orientation information at high data rates in a fully synchronized manner wirelessly to a mobile device or computer. 

The sensor data is transmitted using the low-power 2.4 GHz wireless Bluetooth radio from a central node to the mobile device or computer. 

Ergonomics

NODES is carefully designed for good ergonomics. The curved design makes mounting and wearing on body parts comfortable, without affecting stability in case of surface mounting.

The NODES software enables real-time visualization of sensor data, as well as over-the-air reconfiguration of the sensors and wireless parameters. All data retrieved by the NODES Studio software is logged for post-analysis.

Optimized for ease of use by care providers

Technology is often optimized for use by tech-savvy people, engineers and researchers. With NODES we focussed on creating solutions which are easy to use especially by people that are not necessarily living and breathing technology.

NODES is developed in close cooperation with a number of leading hospitals and therapists in the Netherlands.
