Sensor Fusion

What is Sensor Fusion?

Sensor fusion is software that intelligently combines data from several sensors for the purpose of improving application or system performance. Combining data from multiple sensors corrects for the deficiencies of the individual sensors to calculate accurate position and orientation information.

MEMS sensors have become critical building blocks within electronic systems over the past several years. A common suite of MEMS sensors is now supported across all types of mobile devices to enable such applications as screen rotation, gesture recognition, gaming, step-counting, and personal navigation.
