MTw Awinda is an easy to integrate wireless human motion tracker for real-time applications. The patented Awinda protocol ensures highly accurate time-synchronized data sampling (within 10 μs) in all connected MTw’s, which is essential for accurate joint angles.
The Awinda radio protocol ensures highly accurate time-synchronization within 10 µs between each MTw on a wireless body area network, which is essential for accurate joint angles.
Some key features of the MTw Awinda are:
Easy to integrate using extended API
Providing highly accurate drift-free 3D orientation data
Data between multiple MTw's is time-synchronized to within 10μs using patented Awinda protocol
Global 24/7 technical support
Integration with the MTw is very straightforward with the Xsens MT Software Suite. The MT Software Suite is an easy-to-use API that can be interfaced with via a COM, C, and C++ interface with support for Windows and Linux.
The MTw Awinda can be used in multiple situations and for different purposes. The Awinda has applications in:
Healthy and Safety Therapy, rehabilitation, prevention, pedestrian navigation
Sports Injury prevention, performance science
Research Biomedical analysis, gait analysis
Virtual Reality Training & simulation, head tracking, gaming
Human Machine Interaction Robotics

The MTw Awinda includes the MT Software Suite containing:
MT Manager Software
An easy-to-use graphical user interface allowing real-time view of 3D orientation and sensor data, recording of data streamed from the MTw’s through the Awinda Station and export to ASCII files for further analysis.
Software Development Kit
The SDK gives direct and real-time access to the output of the MTw motion trackers, allowing users to configure and easily integrate the MTw’s in their own applications.
It includes drivers for various operating systems, documentation and various other useful tools. Communication is made easy with the Xsens Device API (XDA) which is completely in C-code. The MT SDK includes the following development tools:
Examples for C++, C# and Matlab.
Supported operating systems: Windows and Linux.
DLL for both 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
Extensive documentation on the MTw, the XBus protocol and the SDK (PDF and HTML)
