AiQ 2023 TITAS

AiQ.Symertial G6系列新產品發表

南緯實業(1467)旗下子公司愛克智慧科技(AiQ Smart Clothing) 與英國IMU(慣性量測單位)動態捕捉技術先驅(Synertial) 所合資創立的AiQ.Synertial 英國公司,於2023 年 10 月宣佈推出獨步全球的”G6”第六代高階IMU動捕服和手套系統。


AiQ Synertial 秉持其將近三十年的軟體演算法功力與應用開發經驗,不斷嘗試開創能與廣泛日常需求交集之的IMU動補產品。此次G6 系統之發表更是體現了持續超越的企業理念。

G6 感測器系統,採用了獨一無二的”15-Axis” 多傳感器支援架構(已取得多項國際專利,持續擴充中),其配備了每秒4000度旋轉的高階陀螺儀(Gyro),32G之加速規(Accelerometer),ECG心電偵測,震動回饋,GPS定位。這樣的開創性研發,催生了目前業界唯一能對抗IMU”資料飽和” (Non-saturation),偵率超越200FPS的動補系統。無論是最細微緩慢的復健動態,亦或極度高速棒球投球姿態,甚至末端手持式運動器具動態,都能輕鬆捕捉品質良好的動態資料。在可見的未來,將進一步推出手機動捕作業系統,此舉將讓動捕操作之使用友善度到達新境界。

然而,AiQ Synertial能實現上述令人驚豔的技術規格與應用領域突破,乃是得力於有45年功能性布料與服裝工藝深厚經驗的南緯實業,以及精通電子與紡織整合工藝的智慧衣先驅愛克智慧科技。憑藉著台灣精湛的硬體功力,G6系統得以推出傲視業界的”IPX5” 電子系統可手洗規格,此舉解決了動補系統長期以來難以清潔的問題。

目前AiQ Synertial 已接獲許多量產訂單,並與多家國際品牌大廠開發合作中。 更多詳細資訊,請參考官方網站 : www.texray.com / www.aiqsmartclothing.com / www.synertial.com 。

本次2023 TITAS台北紡織展於10月17 日至 10月19日在台北南港展覽館一館四樓舉行. AiQ. Synertial G6系列會於M912南緯實業展示館出場. 歡迎各界產業先進蒞臨指教
