Some Novel Applications for Wireless Inertial Sensors

Abstract:
Sensors have followed a corollary of Moore’s Law as they progressively decrease in size, cost, and often power. Nowhere is this more evident than with inertial sensor systems, as MEMS-based devices become steadily smaller and exhibit better performance. A designer can now implement a sensor suite that was once restricted to heavy platforms such as satellites onto the form factor of a wristwatch – when wedded with low-cost RF networking and every-more capable embedded processing, many novel applications are enabled. This paper overviews a selected subset of projects from the Media Lab’s Responsive Environments Group that result from this trend and exploit compact inertial sensing in different ways.
