We are pleased to announce OpenSim 4.1 <https://simtk.org/frs/?group_id=91>.
The new software enables users to read in inertial measurement unit (IMU)
data and compute inverse kinematics based on IMU orientations. This
workflow is called OpenSense. This is an exciting initial step towards
supporting biomechanical analyses with IMUs in OpenSim.

For this release, the user is primarily responsible for ensuring proper
calibration and registration of the sensors to an appropriate OpenSim
model. In the future, we will add more advanced algorithms for calibration,
registration, and drift correction. You can read more about these new
capabilities and try an example: OpenSense - Kinematics with IMU Data

We have also fixed several bugs and improved the user experience. Read more
and learn how to upgrade
