As part of a European joint research project, under the umbrella of the Clusters for Application and Technology Research in Europe on Nanoelectronics (CATRENE), a compact sensor system has been developed with nine sensory freedom levels – comprising a 3D gyroscope, a 3D linear acceleration sensor and a 3D magnetometer. The power supply for applications on the human body is supported using energy harvesters that convert body heat and the kinetic energy available during walking into usable electrical energy. The sensor information is prepared using data fusion algorithms for specific application scenarios from the fields of pedestrian navigation, medical orthotics and gesture recognition.
Our key development focuses are:
