MEMS motion sensing meets Hollywood

Makers of ‘Iron Man 22’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ incorporate technology from Analog Devices and Xsens to enhance special effects.
A real-time motion capture technology—developed by Analog Devices (ADI) Xsens Technologies B.V. is being used for character animation in major motion pictures, including ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘Iron Man 2’.

“Analog Devices’ iMEMS motion sensing technology provided the right level of performance for our MVN suit design objectives,” says Casper Peeters, CEO of Xsens. “It’s very exciting to see the game developers and special effects studios not only recognize the flexibility, quality and ease of use that Xsens MVN brings, but also its cost efficiency, bringing positive bottom line results.”

"We are seeing the next wave of adoption driven by the heightened awareness of MEMS motion sensor capabilities,” said Mark Martin, vice president, MEMS and Sensor Group, Analog Devices. "The first wave was driven by auto safety systems in the 1990s; the second wave by consumer products in the 2000s. During the next decade, a third wave will see the adoption of MEMS sensors in many medical, industrial instrumentation, and other innovative applications."
