MVN Awinda is a motion capture system with 17 wireless sensors fitted on the body with adjustable straps. It supports fast, easy, and reliable motion capture, making it ideal for regular motions and multiple actors using the same set-up. With a range of up to 50 m, it can be used in a wide variety of applications, including workplace ergonomics, rehabilitation and injury prevention, animation, entertainment, biomechanical science and human factor research. Plus, it can be worn over clothing.
Inertial motion capture requires sensors attached to the body to capture movements. But that’s only the half of it. You need both hardware and software for a full motion capture system.
