monitor curves and surfaces using inertial sensors
What is MorphoShape?
Applications: In general, shape reconstruction from inertial sensor input has multiple applications:
Miniaturization technology enables MEMS sensors to be embedded into flexible materials. These sensors locate themselves with respect to the Earth's gravitational and magnetic fields. In combination, they provide data tangential to their measuring point and dedicated algorithms can then reconstruct the shape of the instrumented surface. This technology offers a real alternative to conventional optical systems since there is no need for environmental instrumentation or specific visibility, etc.
