Moven wireless inertial motion capture system
The Moven motion capture suit is an easy to use, cost efficient system for full-body human motion capture. Moven is based on unique, state-of-the-art miniature inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms.

Moven Mocap Suit
• 16 embedded inertial motion trackers (up to max. 18) with embedded wiring.
The inertial motion trackers give absolute orientation estimates, which can also be used to calculate the 3D linear accelerations in world coordinates which in turn give translation estimates of the body segments.
An advanced articulated, biomechanical body model of 23 segments, constraints the motions and eliminates any integration drift or foot-sliding. This highly advanced approach gives users of Moven incredible freedom in type of motions, no problems with lost/interchanged markers, no issues with internal arm/hand rotations, jumping, etc.
Moven Studio is included with your Moven order.
Moven Studio Software
Moven Studio has a plug-in for easy and real-time integration with MotionBuilder. The plug-in is optional to purchase.
The 'net streamer' feature inside Moven Studio allows you to stream motion data via several protocols to different applications, e.g. Motionbuilder. Real-time pre-visualization will be available in a simple point-and-click environment. The plug-in also enables skeletal data to be transferred from multiple characters and layered in real-time via a live remote control interface to essentially use MotionBuilder as an animation-recording tool.
Autodesk MotionBuilder is a software program optimized for 3D animation and motion capture, which will allow true cinematic workflows. It supports the widest number of devices for input, including Moven. The logical ease of use and power of MotionBuilder is legendary, making nearly any adjustments to live capture or 3D animation possible. Since 3D animation and motion capture is all MotionBuilder does, it offers real-time mesh deformation with textures, lighting and effects from your motion capture data or live input.
The MotionBuilder native Autodesk FBX® file format allows you to easily transfer assets to and from Autodesk® 3ds Max® and Autodesk® Maya® software products, and any other content creation package that supports FBX¡ªmaking it a complementary package that can enhance any new or existing production pipeline.
Moven is a portable motion capture suit which provides highly accurate and fluid motion capture data in any situation. Not being limited to a studio or lab, it can be used anywhere: outside, in the office, on the work floor or in the sports arena. There are no restrictions for lighting, clothing or obstacles. And unique for inertial motion capture systems: the sensor-suit captures any type of movement, including running, jumping, crawling and cartwheels.
Moven is based on Xsens¡¯ unique inertial sensor technology, proven in the academic field of biomechanics and various other areas. You may want to read the papers listed on Xsens' website.
For the world premiere of world's best selling game HALO 3, Moven was used to create the promotion movie. This was broadcasted in Sweden and created by Insertcoin.se.
For RWE, an energy provider, Syndicate produced a tv spot featuring a hamster talking about houses and heating. The end result was accomplished by using Moven.
Gearbox Software LLC used Moven for ther latest game release: Borderlands™. A quote from Gearbox: "With the Moven system, our new studio is the entire Earth".
Application storyAn example application is the ¡®dismounted soldier trainer¡¯, developed for the Royal Dutch Army by:
The Dismounted Trainer is a unique system that allows users to receive Immersive virtual training, while using their own body as method of interaction with the virtual world and other participants. When a user wants to walk, or run, to a certain area in the virtual environment, this is accomplished by running or walking in real life. The most important aspect of this trainer is natural interaction, to optimize the learning process.
The Dismounted Soldier Trainer is in use for reseARCh on Military Operations on Urbanized Terrain (MOUT) operations, which is a Re-lion project in cooperation with TNO and the Royal Netherlands Army. Training other tasks, such as flight deck training, fire fighting maintenance, repair and overhaul are also the possibilities.
Moven used to it full advantage during live theatre performance by Belgian artist Praga Khan.
A major advantage of Moven over other motion capture systems is that it can be used inside or behind an object without losing data. You can capture a person while sitting in a car or standing behind a table. These situations are extremely difficult to record with systems requiring free line-of-sight.
