EPSON IMU- INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT WORKING & APPLICATION
WHAT IS IMU? INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT WORKING & APPLICATION
The term IMU stands for “Inertial Measurement Unit”, and we use it to decribe a collection of measurement tools. When installed in a device, these tools can measure and report a body’s specific force, angular rate, and sometimes the orientation of the body. IMUs contain sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers.
How does an IMU work?
IMU can measures a variety of factors, including speed, direction, acceleration, specific force, angular rate and magnetic sussounding the device.
Each tool in an IMU is used to capture different data types:
- Accelerometer: measures velocity and acceleration
- Gyroscope: measures rotation and rotational rate
- Magnetometer: establishes cardinal direction (directional heading)
IMUs combine input from several sensor types for accurately output movement.
What is an IMU used for?
IMUs are typically used to manoeuer aircraft (an attitude and heading reference system), including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), among many others, and spacescraft. Including satellites and landers. Recent developments allow the production of IMU-enabled GPS devices. An IMU allows a GPS receiver to work when GPS-signals are unavailable, such as in tunnels, inside buildings, or wwhen electronics interference is present.
