MTx

Human motion tracker

The MTx is a small and accurate 3DOF Orientation Tracker. It provides drift-free 3D orientation as well as kinematic data: 3D acceleration, 3D rate of turn and 3D earth-magnetic field.

  • Accurate full 360 degrees 3D orientation output
  • 3D acceleration, 3D rate of turn and 3D earth-magnetic field data
  • All solid state miniature MEMS inertial sensors inside

Overview

EOL notice

 

Important: End-of-Life Notice 
On August 31st, 2013, Xsens has issued an End-of-Life notice for the MTx single motion trackers and related accessories. Details on the EOL can be found
 in the End of Life Notice MTi 3rd generation (PDF). The product is still in production until August 31st 2014; however we recommend all customers to consider the MTw, which is the wireless successor of the MTx. Please refer to the MTw Development Kit page for more information.

Overview
