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, […]
MicroStrain’s ENV-Link –Mini shrinks its wireless node technology to a 150-mm wide x 53-mm high x 100-mm deep IP67 weatherproof enclosure. The wireless nodes support a wide range of applications in environmental monitoring and precision farming. Available environmental sensors include solar radiation, soil moisture and leaf wetness, and users have the option to add their own […]
At Sensors Expo 2012, Stephane Gervais-Ducouret, Director of Global Marketing for Freescale Semiconductor discusses sensor fusion software developed for Microsoft’s Windows 8. The software is demonstrated in a reference platform with 12 axes of sensor input information including 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer as well as pressure, temperature and ambient light sensors. For more information […]
At Sensors Expo 2012, Ed Brachocki, director of marketing for Kionix explains the company’s sensor fusion software to Sensors Tips senior editor Randy Frank. The software suite runs either as a hardware solution on a microcontroller or as a software solution on an apps processor with a variety of 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer inputs. […]
Gang Xu, senior applications engineer for STMicroelectronics demonstrates the capabilities of motion software and inertial measurement unit (IMU)-equipped gloves to Sensor Tips senior editor Randy Frank at Sensors Expo 2012 in Chicago. Each of the gloves has a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis magnetometer. ST’s iNEMO sensor fusion software brings all the inputs […]
