Based on magnetostatics principles (and not electromagnetism), ami’s technology consists of an array of tri-axis magnetic sensors measuring the magnetic field of at least one permanent magnet. Thanks to optimized and patented algorithms, these measurements allow to calculate in real time the 3D position & orientation of the magnet with a very high accuracy.
As it is not based on electromagnetism, ami's technology cannot be affected by radio frequencies (RFID, NFC, BLE, WIFI, 5G.....). The ami technology is also compatible with existing touch surfaces and allows a transparent palm rejection.
Our “simple magnet” emitter does not involve any electronics, hence may easily be embedded into everyday object, giving them a digital existence (a pen, a clutch pencil, a stylus ... a figurine, a joystick, a toy, a car...).
Our technology is based on standardized low cost tri-axis magnetic sensors (less than 1mm3). Their number, position and type can be adapted according to the expected performances. Beyond design rules, ami’s engineering team may support you in all phases, from product design to sensor qualification, up to modelization.
