Analog Devices ADIS16500/05/07 Precision Miniature MEMS IMU Available Now from Digi-Key

The Analog Devices’ ADI ADIS16500/05/07 precision miniature MEMS IMU includes a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. Each inertial sensor in the MEMS IMU combines with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance.

Mr. Gopalan’s presentation is “High-Definition 3D LiDAR: The Key Sensing and Perception System for Self-Driving Cars:”


Presentation Synopsis: Worldwide LiDAR adoption began with 3D mobile mapping, the key building block to the Mobility Revolution, but has since evolved to impact various industries. This session addresses the importance of LiDAR technology and delves into how LiDAR provides the accurate distance and reflectivity measurements at highway speeds, enabling advanced level 4 and level 5 autonomous vehicles, as well as level 2 and level 3 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) enabled vehicles.


The show will also preview the Velodyne VLS-128, the world's most advanced LiDAR sensor. A culmination of 10 years of LiDAR development and learning from millions of road miles, the VLS-128 provides the range, resolution and accuracy required by the most advanced autonomous vehicle programs in the world. The product is nominated for an Innovation Award.
