IMUs Enable Sensor Solutions for Drones, AVs, & Robots

ACEINNA’s OpenIMU solution consists of three key parts, the first being a family of Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) consisting of three accelerometers, three gyros, and an ARM Coretex. Second is an OpenSource tool chain and reference code for programming the IMU. It consists of everything from basic download and debug to reference implementations of loosely-coupled GPS/INS. Finally, third is a full Developer Site and tools with charting, graphing and even algorithm simulation.

 

The OpenIMU Development hardware development kit includes JTAG-pod, precision mount fixture, EVB, and an OpenIMU300 module.  The OpenIMU module features ACEINNA’s 5°/Hr., 9-Axis gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor suite with an onboard 180MHz ARM Coretex floating-point CPU.   The IMU is delivered in a small (24x37x9.5mm), easy to integrate module that operates from 2.7-5.5VDC. This freely downloadable stack includes:
