While motion sensors first became popular in high-end smartphones and tablets, they are now rapidly becoming key requirements in every consumer device on the market. Virtually anything that moves can take advantage of a motion sensor, creating a huge market opportunity for MEMS manufacturers that rivals the explosive growth experienced with the original smartphones. The world of connected and interactive electronic devices that are not fixed in one place is known as the Internet of Moving Things.
Through the Internet of Moving Things, we have the ability to connect anything that moves and monitor, analyze and deliver real-time insights from the resulting data. Because motion sensors provide an intuitive way for consumers to interact with their electronic devices, the market applications are endless and can include:
- Wearable devices
- Health and fitness monitors
- Gaming consoles
- Smart clothes
- Smart watches
- Shipment tracking
- Remote controls
Paving the way towards the Internet of Moving things is mCube, the company behind the world’s smallest motion sensors in the world. mCube has developed the enabling technology to make the “Internet of Moving Things” truly possible by delivering MEMS-based motion sensing technology that is:
- Extremely small
- Very lower power
- Cost effective
- Easily integrated with other electronics
The Internet of Moving Things is going to change the way we live, work and play. Explore the possibilities of how mCube’s accelerometers, magnetic sensors and iGyro™ can bring motion sensing capabilities to consumer devices.
