Functionalities

wheeled_robot Inertial measurement unit (IMU)

An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a self-contained system that provides raw, calibrated sensor linear and angular motion data with a triad of gyroscopes and a triad of accelerometers. IMUs are often used as building blocks in more complex systems.

container_ship Vertical reference unit (VRU)

A vertical reference unit (VRU) measures roll, pitch, and (unreferenced) yaw. Its sensor-fused data level is used for dynamic positioning in a variety of contexts. VRUs are the perfect solution for locations with high magnetic interference, as they do not rely on magnetic referencing.

TartanAUV Attitude and heading reference system (AHRS)

An attitude and heading reference system, or AHRS, provides 3D orientation by integrating gyroscopes and fusing this data with accelerometer and magnetometer data. The yaw output is referenced to true north and the result is a drift-free orientation.
