Thales has announced at Sensors Expo 2019 the availability of its NavChip Series 3, the latest in its family of high precision Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs). The Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based high-precision NavChip Series 3 features advanced proprietary signal processing techniques. The NavChip Series 3 provides users with the ability to choose the optimum performance to […]
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology has created many of the sensors in today’s smartphones. While similar types of sensors are also used in robots and drones as well as other technologies including a variety of vision sensors, they may have to be even smaller to fit in an autonomous microrobot. Inspired by insects’ movements, engineers from […]
Aceinna has announced its new OpenIMU300RI. A rugged, sealed-package, open-source, nine-degree-of-freedom (9-DOF) inertial measurement unit (IMU) for autonomous off road, construction, agricultural and automotive vehicle applications. This new open-source IMU, allows engineers to easily optimize an attitude, navigation or other algorithm for their vehicle/application and run it in on the IMU. This minimizes communication on […]
First Sensor is launching a new generation of high-accuracy capacitive silicon inertial sensors aimed at applications in the fast-growing market of smart structural monitoring. The new sensors offer the resolution and low noise density required for recording vibrations or changes of inclination in wind turbines, bridges, and high-rise buildings, thereby uncovering risks in the structure […]
ACEINNA has published a new video on YouTube titled How to measure dynamic tilt and orientation with an IMU: Why would one want to know the dynamic tilt angle on a vehicle? Consider a classic example of a plane in the clouds. The pilot can’t see the ground, nor can he or she trust […]
