Fast, accurate motion data

The Shadow system uses the highest quality MEMS inertial components to provide low noise, high resolution output data for smooth and accurate orientation measurements.

The precision IMU sensors update at up to 1000 Hz, for low latency orientation response. Stream the calibrated sensor and orientation data at output rates up to 400 Hz.

  • Cutting edge, precision inertial sensor technology
  • High-precision inertial sensors
  • 4000 °/sec gyros will not saturate
  • Responsive 1000 Hz internal update rate
  • Low latency for interactive applications
