InvenSense Announces VR/AR Sensor to Combat Discomfort
InvenSense, a leading provider of MEMS sensor platform solutions, announced the ICM-20603, a 6-axis inertial sensor targeted for Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality applications. The InvenSense ICM-20603’s performance delivers on that promise with best-in-class gyroscope stability vs. time and temperature, coupled with proprietary integrated technology for real time response and content synchronization. These proprietary technologies which allow faster refresh rates on video, and tighter alignment of head tracking motion with content, are essential to creating immersive experiences that avoid user discomforts such as eye stress, headache and nausea.
In addition, the ICM-20603 comes with a compatible 1KHz 9-axis sensor fusion library and software to create a platform for compelling new sensor-rich VR devices.
“Virtual Reality devices are growing at a rapid pace, with opportunity for additional sensor content in the Head Mounted Display and accompanying accessories,” said Eitan Medina, vice president of marketing and product management at InvenSense. “This presents an exciting opportunity for InvenSense which is leading the competition in meeting the rigorous performance demands of this market segment and delivering an exceptional user experience.”
