COLLADA: MotionNode offers an affordable 3-DOF inertial measurement unit

MotionNode is an affordable 3-DOF inertial measurement unit for use in motion sensing applications. The sensor is extremely small, easy to use, and yields accurate orientation tracking results. MotionNode can be used in real-time applications or as a motion capture device.

The open source Software Development Kit (SDK) provides real-time access to the sensor data streams. Recorded motions can be exported to industry standard animation formats, such as COLLADA and FBX, for effortless integration with existing Digital Content Creation (DCC) pipelines and software.

The goal of the MotionNode system is to make high quality, easy to use motion sensing technology available to everyone. To achieve this goal, the software platform is designed with an open architecture, using standard components whenever possible. COLLADA provides a widely supported and flexible asset format that meets the current needs of the MotionNode system, while allowing for future growth.
