IMU brings high-precision measurement to unmanned vehicles
Gladiator Technologies’ LandMark 005 Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with high-speed VELOX technology and a SWaP-C design measures .6 cubic inches and offers high-precision performance for control and stabilization applications in rugged environments, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). The six-axis IMU comes conditioned, modeled and user configurable for easy integration out of the box, including factory calibration over the full temperature range.
The VELOX processing technology minimizes digital phase lag and enables high-speed output data rates (up to 10k Hz) for measurement accuracy and flexibility, said Gladiator. The IMU is comprised of low-noise gyros with an ARW of less than 0.0028°/sec/√Hz and low-noise accelerometers with a VRW of less than 0.075mg/√Hz.
"The Gladiator Technologies' advantage starts with our focus on inertial sensor performance. Specialized test and calibration routines are performed at the system level to ensure all products meet specifications across time, temperature and environments," said Eric Yates, business development manager, in a statement.
A development kit is available to help with set-up, feature configuration, and data collection. Click here for the datasheet.
