The easiest way to assess the inertial sensor system of your AndroidTM Device!

Many new smartphone applications like indoor navigation, augmented reality or immersive games require data from inertial measurement units (IMU) consisting of accelerometers and gyroscopes. Although the accuracy of the inertial sensors directly affects the soundness of these mobile applications, so far no standardized tests exist to assess their quality. MEMS Score was developed for this exact purpose. It utilizes the camera of the phone as a reference to estimate the quality of the inertial sensor data. MEMS Score does not require special equipment1 and is able reveal significant discrepancies between different phone models.

You can download MEMS Score from the Google Play Store:

1Only a reference pattern printed on a piece of paper is needed for some tests.

15.03.2017 - Major Update for MEMS Score on Google Play

MEMS Score has been updated to version 2.0.1 on Google Play.
The update includes the following changes:

  • Completely Reworked UI
  • Enhanced the tests with a Meta-Score which also incorporates the standard deviation of the measurements.
  • Combined static test for Linear Acceleration and Game Rotation Vector to reduce amount of needed tests

A reset of the Database was needed for the new ratings. It will be populated in the future again.

The update includes the following changes:

  • Fixed a crash in the Dynamic Rotation Test
  • Added missing "Back" button to the results of the acceleration test
  • Corrected a name in the About Dialog
  • Cleaned up devicenames in the Database
  • Fixed bug where the manufacture names appear twice in the statiscs
