MotionNode in hand

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

  • Configure your sensors
  • 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 FBX, C3D, and CSV spreadsheet. 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.
