ACEINNA launched an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for use in autonomous vehicles, robots and industrial machinery.

The OpenIMU330B is a MEMS-based IMU designed to enable AVs to stay on track during turns and complicated maneuvers. It relies on 6 depth of field measurements and is just 11x 15x 3 mm.

For AVs, it is designed to provide electronic stability control and lane keep assist functions, among others.

It is the first triple redundant, compact and affordable IMU on the market, the company said. The triple-redundant sensor architecture consists of three independent, 3-axis accelerometers and 3-axis gyros for accuracy and reliability.

The IMU is powered by an ARM M4 CPU and runs the OpenIMU open-source stack. It runs across a high temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Each IMU is priced at $73 when purchased in 1000 batches.
