Our goal would be to use Ardunio, because we know that, and some kind of sensors.
The goal would be to create a motion capture cloth for record movements and process almost real-time to a PC. And to be able to record going up or down on the stairs or running under open sky.
1. idea: Use 1 Arduino Uno and connect 16 different MinIMU-9 v3 sensors (http://www.pololu.com/product/2468
). Because of I2C we would use an analog multiplexer and resistors to get them work. The Arduino would use Bluetooth to send the measured values to a PC, where we would process the measurements with something. (3Ds max and/or with something). It seems to be good, but we try to find a cheaper but still good solution.
2. idea: Use 1 MinIMU-9 v3 sensor with a blend micro (http://redbearlab.com/blendmicro
) what would work with the other 15 blend micros. The other 15 blend micros would use this, for example: (https://www.dx.com/p/gy-521-mpu6050-3-axis-acceleration-gyroscope-6dof-module-blue-154602#.U8EHlnJ_uC-
). Our idea would be that we would compute an almost accurate position with MinIMU and the other, mentioned accelerometers/gyroscopes would compute the relative positions to the minIMU or to each other. The blend micros would communicate with each other and one of them would send the values to a PC (with bluetooth). The process of the measurements would be the previously mentioned 3ds max or something combo.
other idea: ?
We would like to find the best and cheap solution until the end of the week, because the shipping would take a lot of time. Can you help me find the "best", or some kind of better and cheap solution? Thanks a lot.
