Can you use an Arduino with MTw Awinda trackers?

Using an Arduino, or any other microcontroller motherboard in combination with the MTw Awinda trackers will not work. For the MTw's to output their data, and to make sense of this data, you will need to run the XDA (Xsens Device API). The MTw's don't offer the possibility to process the data onboard, unlike our MTi trackers: XDA- and Onboard Processing.

XDA Processing

The XDA performs sensor fusion of the data from the MT instead of the MT processing the data itself. The orientation and inertial data is calculated by the XDA.

Output prerequisites for XDA processing:

  • Orientation
  • Magnetic Field
  • Acceleration
  • Angular Velocity
