FemtoBeacon - Wireless IMU and LPS

NOTE: This item is handmade, and ships every 25 days. 

LPS (Local Positioning System) allows you to track location of objects by means of RF measurements. IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) collects angular velocity and linear acceleration data.

Our dime-sized FemtoBeacon is an Atmel ARM Cortex M0+ (SAM R21E) with onboard 9-DoF IMU, high precision altimeter, and 2.4GHz wireless communications at 250kb/s (LwMesh, Zigbee, Mesh networking).

FemtoBeacons provide zero-drift 3D position/orientation data, along with RF triangulation - You can pinpoint other FemtoBeacons (direction, distance, angle) with a high amount of accuracy!

FemtoBeacon is Arduino compatible, leveraging the advantage of the Arduino library ecosystem to help get your project running in no time. 

We have example applications to help you interface your FemtoBeacons to the following:

  • Unity3D
  • Node.js (with Three.js for rendering)
  • XCode
  • Python
  • C#

NOTE: FemtoBeacon Requires a FemtoBeacon Mesh Transceiver USB dongle that is not sold with this product. This is stand alone product is meant as a replacement or for someone who needs to add more FemtoBeacons to their project. Please click here to see our FemtoBeacon Essential Kit to save money.
