MotionNode in hand

Each MotionNode sensor includes software for your PC. The software provides a simple interface to:

  • Configure your sensor(s)
  • Adjust sensitivity and filter parameters for different application requirements
  • Preview all output data in real-time
  • Record orientation and sensor data
  • Organize captured motion data and sensor streams for easy retrieval
  • Export motion capture data to standard file formats

The orientation data is available for export to a number of formats, including the industry standards FBX and COLLADA. For more detailed information about the MotionNode software package, please visit our documentation page.

Our Software Development Kit (SDK) provides real-time access to all outputs of the MotionNode pipeline. The SDK is open source and available in the C++, C#, Java, and Python programming languages.
