Inertial measurement units (IMUs) with 10-degree-of-freedom (DoF) measurements provide greater accuracy for orientation sensing in platform stabilization, navigation and instrumentation applications. However, in addition to a tri-axis gyroscope, tri-axis accelerometer, tri-axis magnetometer and a pressure sensor, the sensor must also have a sensor fusion algorithm to combine the readings from each device. With its ADIS16480, […]
