Hardware manufacturer Hillcrest Labs have announced the launch of new high-performance sensor technology which allows for high accuracy at a reasonable consumer price point and is also able to function at low power. The FSM300 sensor technology is being aimed at virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), fitness tracking, industrial monitoring and robotic navigation. The company claims that the high level of tracking accuracy and low latency can help in reducing the motion sickness issues suffered by some VR users. Some product manufacturers, including ZUtA Labs and Grey Technology Ltd have already begun to use the FSM300 sensor technology to improve product performance. Hillcrest Labs say that the FSM300 module has a small form factor, is pre-calibrated and boasts a latency of 2 milliseconds, an orientation accuracy of 1.0 degrees and sampling rates of up to 1KHz.
