Creating an affluent everyday life with our IT solution


What is DIMOTOR?

It is a motion capture system using 17 units of high precision gyro motion sensors.
By wearing DOMOTOR suit containing these motion sensors, the motion data is easily obtained.
Using no camera or marker, the setup is simple and easy, needing no dedicated studio. The obtained motion data is transmitted via Wi-Fi supporting capture of a wide range of motion data.
