Advanced Motion Sensors to be used in Healthcare and Entertainment Applications

The Cambridge University scientists are focusing their research on developing highly receptive motion sensing devices for healthcare and entertainment applications. The Engineer magazine published that these motion detectors are 1,000 fold more responsive than the sensors that have been recently utilized in computer games systems and smartphones.

According to Dr Andrea Cantone of Cambridge University, their innovative technology is least affected by the influence of temperature and pressure. She remarked that the recent micro-electric mechanical systems are affected by background noise caused by the atmospheric pressure and the fluctuations in the environment surrounding them. Dr Cantone’s research team anticipates the use of their motion sensors in consumer solutions in the coming year and further applications may be made possible later. Cantone added that these devices have to get essential research approvals before it can be used in the healthcare sectors.
