MTw Awinda

MTw Awinda is an easy to integrate wireless human motion tracker for real-time applications. The patented Awinda protocol ensures highly accurate time-synchronous data sampling (within 10 μs) from all connected MTws. This is essential for correct joint angles.

MTw Awinda

The Awinda radio protocol ensures highly accurate time synchronization within 10 µs between each MTw of the wireless body area network, essential for accurate joint angles. 

Some of the key features of MTw Awinda are:

  • Easy integration using an extended API

  • Provides highly accurate drift-free 3D orientation data

  • Data between multiple MTws is time-synchronized to within 10 μs using the patented Awinda protocol.

  • Global 24/7 technical support

system integration

Integration with MTw is very simple with the Xsens MT software suite. MT Software Suite is an easy-to-use API that can interface via COM, C and C++ interfaces supporting Windows and Linux. 


MTw Awinda can be used in many situations and for various purposes. Awinda applies to:

  • Ergonomics 
    Workplace Ergonomics, Virtual Verification

  • health and safety

product specifications



MTw Awinda includes the MT software suite which includes:

MT manager software

An easy-to-use graphical user interface allows real-time viewing of 3D orientation and sensor data, recording of data streamed from the MTw through the Awinda station and exporting to ASCII files for further analysis.

software development kit

The SDK provides direct and real-time access to the output of the MTw motion tracker, allowing users to configure and easily integrate the MTw in their applications.

It contains drivers, documentation and other useful tools for various operating systems. Communication is made easy with the Xsens Device API (XDA), entirely in C code. MT SDK includes the following development tools:

  • C++ wrapper

  • Examples in C++, C# and Matlab.

  • Supported operating systems: Windows and Linux.

  • DLLs for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

  • Extensive documentation on MTw, XBus protocols and SDKs (PDF and HTML)
