CloudNav Enables Motion Gesture Solution for Virtuix Omni

San Jose, CA -- CloudNav announces successful integration of CloudNav's sensor fusion solutions into the world's leading virtual reality gaming treadmill, the Virtuix Omni.

CloudNav specializes in software products such as PerformanceFusion™ and TinyFusion™ that enhance a user's experience of motion in a wide array of motion-enabled consumer electronic devices. This is accomplished via patentable algorithms that calibrate inputs from consumer-grade sensors for motion, including gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers, so that the output better represents true motion. CloudNav's offerings also work with pressure sensors, ambient light sensors and more.

The Virtuix Omni is a first-of-its-kind gaming system that takes virtual reality to the next level, allowing users to stand up, walk and run through virtual worlds with the natural use of their own feet, creating an unprecedented sense of immersion. The gaming system uses a custom development of CloudNav's PerformanceFusion and TinyFusion offerings.

"Our team met the difficult challenge of integrating a full sensor fusion solution into Omni's magnetic environment and delivered an excellent performing solution that met the needs of the Omni product," said CloudNav CEO Drake Margiotta. "This represents a significant milestone in our relatively new partnership with Virtuix, and we look forward to similar collaborations in the future."

TinyFusion is the industry's smallest code-size and power-consumption solution, which will enable a new class of wearables for sports, fitness and health, along with phone and tablet motion products in 2015. PerformanceFusion adds significant patentable calibration technology, which will enable the most accurate Pedestrian Dead Reckoning (PDR) and indoor location solution, available later in 2015.

TinyFusion is now production ready for customer implementations.
