Inertial Sensing Technology Key For Robotics Platform

LORD Corporation and Clearpath Robotics partner to bring inertial sensors to the Clearpath research robot platform. For precise navigation in applications such as 3D mapping in difficult terrain, LORD’s inertial sensors promise to enhance the autonomous capabilities of Clearpath’s robots.    

LORD designs and manufactures a full-feature inertial sensor product line with a common protocol and advanced software – integrating the low noise, low drift gyros and accelerometers. Every unit is fully calibrated and temperature compensated, resulting in superior real-world performance under conditions of temperature variation, shock, and vibration.  

Clearpath Robotics offers LORD inertial sensors to academic and corporate research organizations on its mobile robots for survey and inspection, oil and gas, agriculture, materials handling and other applications. LORD inertial sensors provide dynamic position and orientation information to determine robot heading, as well as roll and pitch accuracy.
