OpenIMU IMU development kit combines open-source software and low-cost hardware to enable rapid development of advanced solutions for drones, robotics, and autonomous applications.
Whether you are developing autonomously guided vehicles for industrial applications, autonomous cars, factory or industrial robots, drones, ROVs, any kind of smart machine which needs to move – fast or slow, on land, in the air, or in water, integrating an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) based sensor network will greatly improve its navigation and self-location capabilities.
Aceinna has launched OpenIMU what is says is the first professionally supported, open-source GPS/GNSS-aided inertial navigation software stack for low-cost precise navigation applications such as drones, robots, and AVs.
“With its combination of open-source software and low-cost hardware, the OpenIMU enables advanced, easy-to-deploy localization and navigation algorithm solutions for drones, robotics, and autonomous applications, at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods”, claims the company.
OpenIMU: Open-Source Inertial Navigation Platform
The OpenIMU Development hardware development kit includes JTAG-pod, precision mount fixture, EVB, and an OpenIMU300 module.
The OpenIMU module consists of Aceinna’s 5 deg/Hr, 9-Axis gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor suite with an onboard 180MHz ARM Cortex floating-point CPU. The IMU is delivered in a 24x37x9.5mm, easy to integrate module that operates from 2.7 to 5.5VDC.
OpenIMU developer kits are $395 and in-stock. They include an OpenIMU300, JTAG Pod, EVB, and precision fixture. In production, OpenIMU300 modules are less than $100.
