About InvenSense MotionTracking devices
MotionTracking devices are widely deployed in many consumer electronic devices including smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and smart TVs as they provide an intuitive way for consumers to interact with their electronic devices by tracking motion in free space and delivering these motions as input commands. Accurately tracking complex user motions requires the use of motion sensors such as gyroscopes, accelerometers, compasses, and pressure sensors. Fusing the sensor outputs into a single and accurate data stream for use as input commands in consumer electronics devices ensures an optimal user experience.
