InvenSense™ Announces Turnkey Commercial Grade Wearable Platform For Health and Fitness

BARCELONA, Spain, February 24, 2014 – InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN),  the leading provider of MotionTracking™ sensor system on chip (SoC) and Sound devices, announces a turnkey wearable platform solution intended to substantially shorten the time-to-market for any OEM or ODM. The InvenSense wearable platform solution integrates all of the key functions of a health and fitness wearable device including Motion sensors, Pressure sensor, Microcontroller Unit (MCU), and BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE). This platform incorporates the InvenSense embedded Automatic Activity Recognition (AAR™) software library, which efficiently manages both the key software and hardware components allowing for ‘AlwaysOn’ activity recognition. 

Combining InvenSense’s low-power 6-axis MotionTracking SoC with the advanced AAR software library enables detection of a broader set of activities such as: stationary, walk, run, bike, elliptical, and sleep on a wrist-worn wearable device. The AAR software library also provides accurate pedometer and elevation tracking. Along with software libraries, the InvenSense wearable platform solution includes the Gerber files, BOM, layout, circuit schematics, and XY coordinates that allow the customer to bring its own solution to commercial production. All essential software elements required for a commercial product release are provided. This efficient turnkey solution allows up to 7 days of battery life (70mAH battery) with 24/7 activity recognition.

“In the era of health and fitness wearables, InvenSense is enabling a fast growing ecosystem of developers, operators, brands, big data services, healthcare providers, sports retailers, and fashion designers by providing a commercial grade platform that substantially reduces time to market,” said Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InvenSense. “InvenSense’s new ‘AlwaysOn’ wearable turnkey platform with activity recognition is enabling a new wave of intelligent health and fitness devices such as smart watches, fitness bands, fashion accessories, and health applications.”

InvenSense is exhibiting in booth # D61 in Hall 7 at the 2014 Mobile World Congress taking place in Barcelona, Spain from February 24 – 27, 2014.

Vibration Sensing with LoRaWAN

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Advantech

Vibration sensing is an integral part of today’s connected industrial designs but Bluetooth, WiFi, and Zigbee may not be the best solution for this kind of sensing in an industrial setting. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Andrew Lund about LoRaWAN for vibration sensing. They investigate why LoRaWAN is perfect for industrial vibration sensing, the role that standards play in these kinds of systems, and why 3 axis detection and real-time monitoring can make all the difference in your next industrial design.
