3D remote reference design based on InvenSense accelerometer
January 10, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
French motion-control technology developer Movea has developed a motion enabled remote control reference design with it's Air MotionIC firmware and InvenSense's MPU-6150, the world's first and smallest 6-axis MotionTracking device on a single chip with a built-in Digital-Motion-Processor (DMP).
This provides a complete motion enabled remote control reference design that will enable Movea and InvenSense customers to take advantage of an off-the-shelf, ready-to-use motion-interface solution to provide enhanced user interface navigation and home entertainment control through motion.
Some studies have shown that commanding a home entertainment system with hand gestures is much quicker than accessing programs and navigating through menus with up/down/left/right buttons. Motion-enabled remotes allow for a more intuitive and easy to use way to juggle between the different streams of content, applications and games composing the new generation of Interactive TV.
"We are excited to be working with InvenSense on shaping the future of home entertainment experience," said Bryan Hoadley, President and Executive VP WW Sales and Marketing at Movea, "We use InvenSense's inertial MEMS sensors expertise with our SmartMotion technology to create the smallest and most cost efficient solution to deliver innovative motion features such as in-air pointing, advanced gesture recognition and custom gesture-based user sign-on, dramatically improving user interface navigation."
"We believe that motion-interface is the most intuitive way to reliably interact with today's content rich SmartTV, set top box, and gaming console devices, and Movea's reference design will enable faster adoption by our joint customers," said Dan Goehl Vice President WW Sales for InvenSense.
