InvenSense, Inc. Announces Sensor-Based SaaS Fitness Tracking Platform for Mobile and Wearable Application Developers
Nov 17 15
InvenSense, Inc. announced Coursa Sports, a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) fitness tracking platform for smartphone and smartwatch health and fitness applications. The platform is designed to provide more accurate and always available speed, distance, and route tracking and at least a 3X improvement in relative elevation reporting for walking, hiking and running at up to 50% reduced power consumption. Coursa Sports is comprised of an SDK for integration into a mobile application and a cloud server. As use of mobile fitness applications increases, so does the expectation of battery efficiency and accuracy enabling users to get full credit for their exercise sessions. Most fitness apps use GNSS (such as GPS) to track the speed, distance and route of activity. However, on forest running trails or in deep urban canyon environments, GNSS can be inaccurate or unavailable, resulting in lost or inaccurate fitness data. The Coursa Sports SDK uses advanced algorithms that take sensor data from the mobile device gyroscope, accelerometer, and barometric pressure sensor to generate an inertial tracking data flow that is combined with GNSS data. The addition of the inertial tracking system, together with GNSS, improves customer experience by increasing the continuity and accuracy of the fitness data when GNSS signals are weak or unavailable. Coursa Sports improves mobile device battery life by up to 50% during workouts by frequently turning GNSS off (duty-cycling). During duty-cycling, the lower power sensors are used to track fitness data at the same accuracy as GNSS. This feature extends battery life during fitness tracking, and enables developers to migrate their smartphone apps to smartwatch devices, where smaller batteries and the high power consumption of GNSS previously prohibited fitness tracking use cases.

InvenSense, Inc. Announces New Sensor Technology Solutions
Nov 12 15
InvenSense, Inc. has announced its offering and development of sensor technology solutions for use in safety and non-safety automotive applications. The soaring need for personalized in-vehicle experience, improved safety, assisted automated driving, and predictable maintenance systems is driving growth for automotive sensor technologies. Automotive OEMs and subsystem suppliers are increasingly looking for innovation beyond the traditional automotive MEMS suppliers in order to improve system reliability, cost, and time to market, as the connected car represents an increasing share of the Internet of Things market. InvenSense brings to this growth opportunity its high-volume fabrication platform, high-performance MEMS-based motion tracking devices and microphones, algorithmic insights and advanced processor integration to propel innovative solutions and reduce time to market for novel and reliable sensor solutions. IAM-20680 high-performance, low-power, AEC-Q100-tested 6-axis gyroscope and accelerometer combo provides customers the flexibility to mount the product in any orientation and in a small form factor, fitting any system size. In addition, the IAM-20680 offers best in class noise and offset stability, that meets the most demanding motion detection performance for a variety of in-cabin solutions, including navigation, lift gate motion detection and ADAS camera and image stabilization. InvenSense Positioning Library (IPL) for the automotive market improves standard vehicle navigation systems by providing continuous and accurate navigation in areas of poor GNSS signal quality. IPL combines inertial sensor data from the gyroscope and accelerometer with GNSS to provide always-available and more accurate location data. This capability is particularly effective when GNSS is inaccurate, such as in deep urban canyon environments, or in areas where GNSS is not available, such as tunnels or parking garages. The company is also offering a newly developed gyroscope combos for safety applications, such as skid control, roll detection and electronic stability control, supporting the most demanding, low-bias drift, low-sensitivity drift and high-vibration resiliency performance requirements.
