Introducing TrackMotion, a 9-axis IMU Jan 13, 2014

It's been one week since we launched and we've been busy building up our stock levels and working on more blog posts demonstrating our products (coming soon). We haven't stopped making new products though and we are happy to announce the newest product: TrackMotion.

The TrackMotion is a nine-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) based on the MPU-9150 by Invensense. It has an on-board accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer that provide very accurate readings at up to 1000Hz. By combining all three sensors, you can often avoid the compass calibration issues that plague soccer robots. As each sensor is three-axis, the TrackMotion can also provide motion data on the X- and Y-axes as well, which is useful for other robots like UAVs. The TrackMotion has an I2C interface and operates at 3.3V (this version is not 5V tolerant).

We have more products in the pipeline that we hope to release soon.
