Recommended suit adjustments
Make sure to adjust the tightening straps to ensure an accurate fit to your body. The straps should be neither too tight or too loose, but do make sure that the sensors will not move/change positioning during movement. Double check that all sensors are placed correctly on the velcro patches inside of the textile tunnels.
Recommended calibration process
Remember to do a proper calibration pose, or as we often call it, “straight” pose, before beginning to use/record with the Smartsuit. A proper straight pose means standing straight; the arms should point down towards the ground with legs spread slightly, hip width apart. The feet and head should point straight forward. Finally, please stand still for a few seconds while you do the calibration pose. See the tutorial here.
Recommended wifi setup
Make sure your Smartsuit is within the range of your WiFi signal and that your Wifi is not host to too much traffic (other connected devices). Wifi frequency bands can become very crowded, and the signal strength is affected by walls and other blocking elements. Please make sure you work with the Smartsuit within the suggested range of your router and that the wifi frequency band is not overfull, which can also result in bad suit performance. The Smartsuit support 2,4, and 5 ghz bands. We recommend using the band with the least traffic in order to increase performance and keep a stabile frame rate.

Keep a safe distance from magnetic interfering objects
Keep a safe distance from magnetic interfering objects The 19 IMU’s in the suits make use of a magnetometer, especially during the calibration phase. Therefore, we advise keeping a safe distance of 1 meter from objects that might cause magnetic interference such as metal plates and loud speakers. After the calibration is done it’s possible to get closer to magnetic interfering objects, but it might cause the suit to drift more over time. In Smartsuit Studio there’s a diagnostic panel that helps with diagnosing the magnetic interference within a specific location which can be used as a guide to find the most suitable spots to recording.
