• Product Description


    The absolute orientation sensor BMX055 is a very small, 9-axis sensor, consisting of a triaxial 12-bit acceleration sensor, a triaxial 16-bit, ±2000°/s gyroscope and a triaxial geomagnetic sensor. The BMX055 allows accurate measurement of angular rate, acceleration and geomagnetic fields in 3 perpendicular axes within one device.

    - Augmented reality

    - Human-machine interface and remote controls


    Gaming Applications

    Gaming consoles are a normal part of many people's everyday lives. Soccer, dancing, tennis and a multitude of games utilise motion detection. Of course, many game applications use MEMS sensors, e.g. acceleration sensors detect motion to enhance the user's gaming experience. Sensing the particular movement of the user is converted into a motion-based interface for a game. This opens up a world of opportunities for simpler, more interactive user interfaces.
