Programming examples MTi's


Xsens provides programming examples to help customers getting started using our products. The programming examples can be found in the MT Software Suite installation folders, or via the links below.


Available examples

See below where all available examples we have can be found for the different products.


MTi-1 series

ARM mbed Xsens MTi-1 example

Best Practices for I²C and SPI communication

Arduino I²C library example


MTi-1, MTi-10 and MTi-100 series

We have examples available in C++, C# and Matlab. The examples show how to use our libraries or how to communicate with the device without our libraries.

Find the MT Software Suite installation folder:

C:\Program Files\Xsens\MT Software Suite 4.8\MT SDK\Examples

Within the Examples folder there are sample projects built on the Xsens Device API (XDA) libraries and DLLs, and low level examples suitable for building in an embedded system that cannot use XDA. The latter example is called “src_cpp”. XDA documentation can be found at:

C:\Program Files\Xsens\MT Software Suite 4.8\Documentation\MT SDK

Detailed information on all Low-level communication commands can be found in the LLCP manual

Additional Tools

We also have an implementation of libraries designed to be used in embedded systems to help parse and generate our binary XBus protocol messages. The library and example are available here:
