Motion Detection and User Interface Control
Motion detection for controlling feature-rich devices like smart phones, media tablets, game controllers and TV set top box remotes is becoming more and more popular. Motion based device controlling offers new kind of user experience as users are not any more tied to traditional "button navigation" methods.
In addition to user interface control, motion sensors enable many other interesting and emerging applications such as augmented reality and pedestrian navigation for location based services.
New applications based on motion control are constantly being developed and also enabled by the ever increasing performance of motion sensors. Especially the gyro market is booming.
Murata offers for this application both MEMS gyroscopes and accelerometers.
