AHRS/IMU Module Targets Consumer/IoT Apps

Hillcrest Labs launches the FSM300, a cost effective and low power AHRS/IMU module that delivers the sensor fusion accuracy of industrial-grade sensor technologies at a price point suitable for consumer applications. With 0.5°per minute heading drift and 1.0° orientation accuracy in a very low power device, the FSM300 sets a new price/performance standard – up to 4X better than competitor solution in some tests.   

 

Designed to dramatically improve human and machine motion sensing in a diverse set of consumer and IoT applications, the FSM300 combines MotionEngine, Hillcrest’s high-performance, proprietary sensor processing software, with a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, and 3-axis magnetometer, along with a low-power 32-bit ARM Cortex M0+ MCU. 

  • In Robotic Navigation, precise heading, with 0.5°per minute drift, and multi-axis sensor fusion enable efficient operations that save time and energy costs.
  • In VR, AR and 3D Audio Motion Tracking, latency of 2 milliseconds, orientation accuracy of 1.0°, and sampling rates up to 1KHz enable true-to-life experiences and reduce simulator sickness.
  • In Fitness and Health Activity Tracking, highly accurate step counting and activity tracking ensures users have the most accurate picture of their daily activities.
  • In Industrial Monitoring, precise detection of motion, vibration, and magnetic field anomalies enables tracking and monitoring of commercial and industrial equipment.
