Article: Everything You Need to Know About AHRS

By Mike Ball / 04 Dec 2020

Inertial Sense has released an article covering essential information on AHRS (Attitude and Heading Reference Systems), which combine a magnetometer, a three-axis gyroscope, and three accelerometers to provide measurements of roll, pitch, yaw and heading. AHRS are widely used in UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), AUVs (autonomous underwater vehicles), ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) and other robotic platforms.

The article covers:

  • The individual components that make up an AHRS
  • The advantages of AHRS over traditional vertical gyros
  • The difference between AHRS and IMUs (inertial measurement units)
  • Industries and applications that are dependent on AHRS

The article also includes a video and transcript in which an Inertial Sense sales engineer discusses the company’s μAHRS module, which fuses together data from MEMS gyros, accelerometers, magnetometers, and a barometric pressure sensor to provide optimal estimation.
