Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
Measures angular rate, force and sometimes magnetic field
What Is an IMU?
Inertial measurement units (IMUs) are electronic devices that typically consist of a 3-axis accelerometer (which measures linear acceleration) and a 3-axis gyroscope (which measures angular velocity) and sometimes a Barometer. So, generally speaking, they yield a six-dimensional measurement time series stream. Some IMUs also contain a 3-axis magnetometer (measuring magnetic field), which are specified as MIMUs.
Four IMU components are:
How to select the right IMU?
Some of the aspects we have to consider when we have to select an IMU are performance, underlying technology, SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power) and Cost. Besides, another important factor in UAVs is the ruggedness of the IMU.
In order to learn more about the concept of Inertial measurment unit, we will soon provide you with useful and relevant information in the Gebrabit Encyclopedia.
