Accelerometers Track Activity Of Objects, People Before Reporting To “Mother”

“Motion Cookies,” smart-connected devices for the Internet of Things developed by Sen.se, use STMicroelectronic’s “nano” LIS3DH accelerometer to detect and understand the movements of objects and send the data to the “Mother.” Sen.se’s Mother is an adaptable and programmable device that instantly turns objects into smart and understanding things. It’s the head of a family of as many as 24 small connected sensors—the Motion Cookies—that blend into a user’s daily life to make it more serene, healthy, and pleasurable, according to Sen.se. Motion Cookies, which can be attached to almost anything, leverage the accelerometer’s smart embedded functions and power-saving capability. Thus, they can store 10 days’ worth of data when they are away from the Mother; battery life equals on year, or several months in mobility. Mother and its Motion Cookies are available for pre-order; shipping is expected to commence Spring 2014.
