We can't say that we help all of our clients win Olympic Medals - but for Luge Canada, that is exactly what we did!

With motus' intentional quality, quality design management ensured we are solving the RIGHT problem so we do not waste time and money on a well designed, wrong solution.

WIND TUNNEL

Build it and they will come

This project saw the motus approach come to life.  Quality Function Deployment  (intent) combined with Test Driven Development (content), ensured that the voice of the end user is mapped through all levels of design while defining the desired outcome prior to embarking on design.  Building our own wind tunnel allowed for the level of testing required for the successful outcome.

Innovative strain gauge application

This prototype was developed as a proof of concept to test the feasibility of creating a foot force sensor for use in Competitive Rowing and Canoe Kayak.  Custom transducers with 32 individual strain elements report total x and y forces and center of pressure of force generated by the athlete real time over a CANbus interface.

Instrumented oars were designed to measure the “output” by each individual rower on the oar and provided valuable data and feedback for coaching.

This “output” included measuring the energy input of the athlete to the boat/crew system throughout a stroke, the rate of work (work/time), and the force describing the interaction between two objects resulting in acceleration (the product of force and time)

"Working with Motus has been a highly collaborative and successful process”

We started working with Motus on multiple smaller projects and trusted their expertise and guidance, when we were looking to develop a next-generation wearable solution. Motus' management allowed for flexibility in addressing our changing needs and requirements throughout the development process.

One of the keys to our success was the highly collaborative way in which Motus approached the project. Their firmware team not only worked with our team but also an external resource we had brought together, which let them approach the project from a variety of angles. This allowed us to develop a solution that not only met our current needs but also had consideration for the future.

Motus offers strong architects, who are able to dig into the technical details while keeping a high-level view of the project requirements. This allowed for a top-down and bottom-up approach to defining the solution. Motus' style of communication was valuable in the development of the firmware, as it allowed for honest, transparent and open communication when issues arose.

We were able to address issues efficiently by utilizing a virtual whiteboard, without any personal conflicts. This level of cooperation allowed us to iron out any issues and ensure that we met our project deadlines with a successful and functional solution.

Overall, our experience working with Motus was exceptional. We highly recommend their services and expertise.

Motus has been great to work with on our wearable device.The quick turnaround for design prototypes has allowed us to explore many more options in a short time. The ability to see and feel minor changes, and how they impact the user experience results in a better product.

If you are looking for an excellent contract design team, I would recommend speaking to the guys at Motus Design Group.We have been using Motus since the inception of our project over two years ago and they have been great to work with. I have primarily dealt with Josh and Jamie and they are both excellent engineers and also very personable and easy to work with. They take the time to explain what they are doing in terms that can be understood by lay people and they also include you in every step along the way.Ours was a research and development project involving a new technology and we had numerous unknowns along the way and Jamie and Josh tackled each challenge in a determined and professional manner and delivered a solution that is going to lead us to commercialization.They are continuing their work on this project and leading our research and development team as we move towards commercialization.I have been very pleased with the entire team at Motus and would not only recommend them to others, I am going to continue to use them as we develop new products and iterations on existing products.

Our client required a very short timeline to implement a communication protocol transformation from their system to their customer’s system. Motus Design Group stretched to meet this timeline, providing expert-level embedded software development. Their significant prior experience with CAN protocol proved invaluable.The project was completed on estimate and ahead of schedule.I was very impressed at the high level of initiative and pro-active approach to highlighting and mitigating areas of potential risk to the project.Communications were timely, clear and professional. Meetings with the client were well prepared for and professionally executed which solidified the client’s level of trust in our capability of execution. Throughout the project I was kept involved in the project planning, progress and had a transparent view of the execution.I will gladly work with Motus on future projects.
