Extended reality (XR) applications

Precision, low-power motion for wearable XR systems

M3 Modules offer practical solutions for lens motion, mirror motion and haptic feedback in wearable systems for extended reality (XR), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) devices.

They are light weight and small. They use low power, and have embedded processing in the module. M3 Modules enable motion features that enhance the quality and comfort of the XR experience. They support:

  • Wearable comfort with optimized size, weight and power (SWaP).
  • Visual comfort to prevent headaches and other negative side effects of near-eye displays.
  • Haptic feedback for a more immersive experience.

 

Applications for M3 modules in XR systems

  • Focus, zoom and jitter compensation
  • Vergence-accomodation conflict resolution in binocular vision with fixed wearable projectors
  • Active dimming via uniform shutter motion
  • High-density haptic actuation with multiple actuators providing pressure on the body for a more immersive experience
  • Foveation using a large-aperture, two-axis steering mirror to place the highest-resolution image where the wearer is looking at any given instant.

Large-aperture, two-axis steering mirror is a compact system with low power use for XR applications including foveation. Learn more in this SPIE Conference presentation, Foveation is Coming.

Embedded Motion Solves Extended Reality (XR) Challenges

In the accelerating XR market, embedded micro motion modules are solving challenges that are not addressed by MEMS devices or conventional opto-mechanical systems. These challenges include reducing system size, weight, and power, while simultaneously improving visual comfort and haptic feedback. Learn how embedded micro motion modules fit in the smallest space, reduce total cost, are easy to integrate, and help XR system designers bring products to market faster.
