Add-ons

Don’t you get frustrated with bulky sensor systems? They are often heavy with lots of wires sticking out, making them too cumbersome to wear outside of the lab. To overcome this, we created Mitch as a modular hardware platform suitable for wearable data logger applications. It is compatible with a variety of lightweight add-ons that expand its sensing capabilities while keeping it compact and affordable.

These add-ons are popular with healthcare professionals, trainers, makers, creatives, engineers, scientists and researchers looking to enhance Mitch beyond 9-axis IMU. If requirements change, you can always switch to another add-on or return to the basic inertial sensor configuration.

TOF

Proximity and Light Sensor

TOF is a proximity and ambient light sensor that uses Time of Flight technology. Designed for low power consumption, it provides multiple interrupt schemes that minimize host operations.
