Open Source IMU Development Kit Launches Drones, Robots, AVs

122

ACEINNA has introduced what it’s calling the first open-source Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) development kit for drones, robots, and AVs. OpenIMU embarks as a first of its kind, professionally supported, open-source GPS/GNSS-aided inertial navigation software stack for low-cost precise navigation applications.

OpenIMU enables advanced, easy-to-deploy localization and navigation algorithm solutions for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods.  OpenIMU’s combination of open-source software and low-cost hardware enables rapid development of advanced solutions for drones, robotics, and autonomous applications.

SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17

Sensors Midwest, the industry’s largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area’s greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

OpenIMU’s extensible software-infrastructure provides all the code needed for algorithm development. The freely downloadable stack includes:

  • FreeRTOS-based data collection and sampling engine
  • Performance-tuned, real-time, navigation-grade GPS/INS Kalman Filter library
  • Free IDE/compiler tool chain based on Visual Studio Code
  • JTAG debugging for debugging code loaded on IMU
  • Data logging, graphing, Allen Variance plots, and maps,
  • Extensive documentation
  • Robust simulation environment with advanced sensor error models

The OpenIMU Development hardware development kit includes JTAG-pod, precision mount fixture, EVB, and an OpenIMU300 module.  The OpenIMU module features ACEINNA’s 5 °/Hr, nine-axis gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor suite with an onboard 180MHz ARM Coretex floating-point CPU.   The IMU is delivered in a small (24 mm x 37 mm x 9.5 mm), easy to integrate module that operates from 2.7 to 5.5 Vdc.
