STMicroelectronics’ Unico GUI simplifies configuring the finite state machine and machine-learning core (FSM and MLC) logic of its latest inertial measurement units (IMUs), including the recently announced LSM6DSO and LSM6DSOX 6-axis modules. The FSM logic lets users run gesture- and motion-recognition algorithms directly in the sensor for always-on convenience and low-power consumption. The MLC implements machine-learning classifiers for real-time always-on motion and vibration pattern recognition.

With Unico GUI (STSW-MKI109L for Linux, STSW-MKI109M for Mac OSX and STSW-MKI109W for Windows machines) to configure the module’s internal registers and embedded FSM and MLC logic, users can quickly and easily create their own motion-recognition algorithms. The GUI also makes light work of combining the module’s accelerometer and gyroscope data with inputs from additional external sensors, such as a magnetometer, for even more sophisticated context-sensing capabilities.

When used in smartphones, wearables or industrial devices, the FSM and MLC — as an embedded, low-power engine for gesture and motion recognition — allow user-interface functions and context-aware apps to continue running while the main processor sleeps to maximise battery run time. The LSM6DSO contains logic for up to 16 independent state machines, each generating a hardware interrupt activated by a specific motion pattern, while the LSM6DSOX also contains the logic to implement multiple-stage decision trees for machine-learning classification.
