What is your orientation ? Find east, west, south, north, up, down and more with this sensor in any position. Obtain the heading, pitch and roll of any object. Has digital I2C (for more precision) outputs. View the sensor data using our Orient3D software (see below). Mount on your body with Wearability. Need longer cables ? Use the ExtendCable2D-1.
- Use it as a sophisticated game controller.
- Allow your robot or toy car to know what's up and down, and left and right etc. Combine with GForce3D-6, and
ReachClose to detect approaches to and/or impacts with walls and what have you.
- Use 5 Orient3D on a human body and calculate its posture (some math required !).
Using the sensor with the Wi-microSystem enables you to use the sensor without being tethered to your computer or MIDI device.
- Any magnetic materials or fields in the vicinity of the sensor may distort the sensor output.
- Make sure the sensor is plugged into the digitizer with the red wire connected to power. Reversing the plug may cause damage to the sensor.
- To access the sensor data, please consult the Orient3D manual
- The minimum sampling interval may depend on your computer. If you experience that the digitizer stops sending data only after a delay once you have set the on/off button to "off", and/or that the axes switch (eg. heading is shown as pitch, pitch is shown as roll and roll is shown as heading), increase the sampling interval.
