(Press Release) The inertial motion capture suit Moven developed by Xsens Technologies B.V. has won the Overijssel Innovation Award 2007.

The suit is based on Xsens' inertial sensor technology allowing total freedom of movement. Moven is used for character animation in gaming and film, in virtual reality applications particularly in the defence industry, and in analysing human movements.

The motion capture suit is an easy-to-use, cost efficient portable system for full-body human motion capture. Moven is based on state-of-the-art miniature inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. It does not require external cameras, emitters or markers.

It can thus be used outdoors as well as indoors, there are no restrictions for lighting, it does not suffer from problems of occlusion or missing markers.

The jury was particularly impressed by the advantages of not being limited to a studio or lab: Moven can be used anywhere, outside as well as inside. Moven is unique because it can capture any type of movement, including running, jumping, crawling, cartwheels and even head spins.
