Advanced MEMS IMU Technology
IMUs accurately measure motion by utilizing gyroscopes and accelerometers to sense rotation and acceleration. Some IMUs also include magnetometers to sense the surrounding magnetic field.
IMUs are essential for a wide variety of applications, such as:
- Object tracking for cameras
- Integration with GPS/GNSS to help vehicles navigate through difficult environments such as forested areas, dense urban areas or underwater
- Dynamic antenna platform stabilization
- Pairing with other aiding sources such as radar or LIDAR to enable robots to navigate indoors.
Our HG1120 and HG4930 IMUs utilize proprietary Honeywell technology and designs and leverage our vast experience with inertial sensing technologies. The systems have been designed to meet a broad range of robotic application needs, such as precision agriculture, surveying and mapping, platform stabilization, navigation, and motion compensation.
The HG1120 and HG4930 employ advanced MEMS gyroscopes and accelerometers, and the HG1120 also includes magnetometers. Both systems feature an internal environmental isolation system designed to attenuate unwanted inputs commonly encountered in real-world applications, making the IMUs rugged enough for even the most demanding environments.
With industry standard communication interfaces, both the HG1120 and HG4930 are easily integrated into a variety of architectures.
The extremely small size, light weight and low power make the IMUs ideal for space-constrained and SWAP-conscious unmanned vehicle applications.
