Inertial Sense Miniature GPS-Aided INSInertial Sense has announced the forthcoming release of its new GPS-aided inertial navigation system, the μINS. Inertial Sense hopes to fufil the market need for an accurate, low-cost navigation system, and claims that its patent pending design enables the company’s new technology to be integrated into the world’s smallest GPS aided inertial navigation system.

The μINS is a miniature sensor module that is designed to provide high-quality direction, position, and velocity data for drones and robotic applications. It provides this data by fusing sensor data from GPS (GNSS), gyros, accelerometers, magnetometers, and a barometric pressure sensor.

Inertial Sense unveiled the μINS at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2017 trade show in Dallas.
