Motion tracker is a gamer’s dream come true

11 December 2013

This STEM system by Sixense uses an electromagnetic field to track up to five points to outpace conventional motion trackers.

According to the company, it outclasses current accelerometer and camera-based motion trackers, in terms of responsiveness, positional accuracy, and gestural realism

It uses Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF51822 and nRF24LU1+  to supply the wireless link between up to five (nRF51822) electromagnetic avatar tracking or controller modules (e.g. head, hands, and both feet for full body avatars) and a 2.4m electromagnetic field-generating base charging station (nRF51822). Each module communicates its position and orientation every 4ms to a USB dongle (nRF24LU1+) that plugs into a host PC and runs the Nordic Gazell 2.4GHz proprietary RF protocol stack.
The system will be showcased at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2014 in Las Vegas, January 2014.
