InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN) the leading provider of MotionTracking devices, launched a Contextual Awareness System Development Kit (CA-SDK) to further drive the proliferation of wearable sensor innovations. The CA-SDK is comprised of nine sensors and software on a 1.71 in. x 1.46 in. PCB configured into a wearable watchband. By leveraging the CA-SDK, developers can create advanced applications and end products with orientation tracking and activity recognition capabilities such as running, swimming, biking, playing tennis, walking up or down hill, and determining calorie burn rate. The CA-SDK can also be used for the development of sleep monitoring, posture detection, and applications that detect if the wearer is indoors, outdoors, or driving a car.

The CA-SDK features InvenSense’s MPU-9250, 9-axis MotionTracking device that was also announced today. The CA-SDK leverages InvenSense’ algorithms for MotionFusion , and incorporates temperature, humidity, ultraviolet light, proximity, pressure, and light sensors. The CA-SDK comes with an embedded motion processing library for hardware developers, a USB port, on-board memory, and a Bluetooth module that supports Bluetooth low energy for interfacing with Android and iOS smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

“Our CA-SDK is poised to enable health & fitness apparel, and equipment manufacturers the means to create a new era of wearable products,” noted Ali Foughi, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “These products will provide consumers with contextual awareness, such as insights into their health, fitness and environmental conditions to help improve their quality of life.”

InvenSense will be demonstrating the CA-SDK during CES in booth #30161, located in Hall S3. The CA-SDK is slated for purchase on InvenSense’s website in March.
