SpacePoint Scout: 9-Axis Motion Tracking Development Module





Press Release

Heading Sensors

Willow Technologies Limited is delighted to announce PNI Sensor Corporation’s 9-Axis Motion Tracking Development Module ‘SpacePointTM Scout’.

SpacePoint Scout accurately tracks motion with low latency, enabling development of immersive game and augmented reality applications, offering gaming application developers 9-axis motion tracking technology in one reasonably priced, integrated module.

Said Martin Pearce, Marketing Director of Willow Technologies Limited, ‘SpacePoint Scout includes a suite of sensors: a 3-axis gyroscope, a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis geomagnetic sensor with highly proven sensor fusion algorithms and an I2C interface, for quick implementation.’

SpacePoint Scout comes with the same RM3000 geomagnetic sensor as the one used in the new Nintendo Wii U GamePad. The RM3000 geomagnetic sensor uses PNI Sensor's proprietary magneto-inductive technology, which offers over 15 times better resolution and 16 times less noise than commonly used Hall effect magnetic sensors.

‘The RM3000, in conjunction with the SpacePoint Scout's sensor fusion algorithms, enables highly accurate pointing and motion tracking, even in the presence of magnetic anomalies’ added Pearce.

Developers looking to explore new applications in the field of location-based services, gaming and augmented reality, will be excited by this simple-to-use module which delivers new levels of accuracy and requires no confusing consumer calibrations.

‘PNI’s expertise in geomagnetic technology enables us to provide highly precise sensors and sensor fusion algorithms to customers who need to accurately capture complex motion, with minimal latency, gyro drift or magnetic interference,” concludes Pearce.
