What I love about this blog from Analog Devices’ Marketing Program Manager, Howard Wisniowski, is that it starts with the simple idea of making human motion smarter through technology. Last year I broke my ankle while running (avoiding a truck and I fell in a ditch…but I digress). If I had the inertial motion technology described below, perhaps I could have avoided injury and be a smarter, more efficient runner. Think it’s science fiction, a la Bionic Woman? Nope. As this blog will tell you, the technology is here and is being applied in very real-world examples that will revolutionize the way we interact with our environment, thanks to the MEMS inside. Enjoy — Karen Lightman, Managing Director, MEMS Industry Group.

November 28, 2011 — Whether it’s keeping athletes in top form, improving navigation in medical robots, helping industrial operators extend factory equipment life, or preventing automotive rollovers, high-performance micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) inertial sensing technology adds a new dimension that transforms many conventional applications.
