  title={Xsens MVN: Full 6DOF Human Motion Tracking Using Miniature Inertial Sensors},
  author={Daniel Roetenberg and Henk Luinge and Per J. Slycke},
The Xsens MVN motion capture suit is an easy-to- use, cost efficient system for full-body human motion capture. MVN is based on unique, state-of-the-art miniature inertial sensors, biomechanical models and sensor fusion algorithms. MVN does not need external cameras, emitters or markers. It can thus be used outdoors as well as indoors, there are no restrictions for lighting, it does not suffer from problems of occlusion or missing markers. In addition, unique for inertial motion capture…
