Two MEMS sensor lines aim to please on greens and in streams

Abstract:
Paul Kolen and Noel Perkins are independent innovators 2,000 miles apart. But the professors share a passion for microsensors, and moving them out of their labs. If all goes well, both could see their sensors in fields and streams within a year. Both devices take advantage of microscale accelerometers and gyros: They can be integrated with software and unobtrusively affixed to clubs, rods and even possibly baseball bats, tennis rackets or cello bows. The miniature systems measure angular motion, acceleration and direction.
