OpenMovement is a collection of opensource hardware sensors and software tools for research use. The sensors all feature a MEMS triaxial accelerometer as a base sensor but also contain other sensors for context. There are two types of OpenMovement sensors: wireless and logging.

Logging sensors are useful for taking measurements outside the lab and data collection in difficult environments. The sensors use inbuilt memory to store data and the software tools facilitate the download of data for post analysis.

Wireless sensors currently use the very low-power IEEE 802.15.4 standard and continuously transmit their data back in a start topology network. At network hub is connected to a computer that can reason what the data means and issue control or automation type commands.

Open movement sensors are actively being used in a number of projects both within our lab and others all over the world.
