MVN Studio 3.0

Something head-scratchingly complex about KiC algorithms and 3D tracking.

ENSCHEDE, Netherlands, 12 June 2010 - Xsens Technologies B.V., leader in professional 3D tracking systems, today announced the release of MVN Studio 3.0. The latest version of Xsens' motion capture software application now comes with the previously announced KiC algorithm, improving the robustness and accuracy of 3D tracking, even in strong magnetically disturbed environments. Xsens will be demonstrating MVN Studio 3.0 at the SIGGRAPH convention (July 27-29, 2010) in Los Angeles at booth 839 and at the World Congress on Biomechanics (August 1-6, 2010) in Singapore at booth B5C.

The patent pending KiC algorithm is now part of MVN Studio 3.0. “Using KiC, it is now possible to accurately track movement in environments with significant amounts of iron, like large steel beams, reinforced concrete floors and radiators,” says Per Slycke, CTO of Xsens. The introduction of the KiC algorithm is a corner stone to build on to provide robust, accurate 3D tracking of human motion under all circumstances. Inertial sensor technology again proves to be a disruptive technology to be reckoned with in the 3D tracking field.

MVN Studio 3.0 shipped with MVN and MVN BIOMECH now supports Window 7, has a restyled intuitive user interface, with the addition of orthogonal views. The latest release also contains many new features such as:

Body center of mass calculation, displayed in 3D viewport Reference Camera, for recording and playback of synchronized video 3D graphs of all data, including joint angles, body segments, CoM, and sensor data Extended MVNX file format now includes sensor data, center of mass, and joint angles Graphical display of joint axis coordinates C3D export for analysis applications
