September 14, 2016By
The CAST-3000 simulator from NovAtel.

GNSS/INS Integration Testing Dynamic testing before flight The CAST-3000 fully supports integration testing of GNSS/INS navigation systems where the inertial sensor and GNSS receiver are either tightly or ultra-tightly coupled. It produces GPS RF signals coincident with simulated IMU sensor data that provide dynamic testing in the laboratory environment for military and government applications. The proprietary laboratory test interfaces to... read more

Research: MEMS IMU carouseling for ground vehicles

September 13, 2016By
Collin-Jussi

Micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) gyroscopes have advantages for orientation sensing and navigation as they are small, low cost and consume little power. However, the significant noise at low frequencies produces large orientation errors as a function of time. Controlled physical rotation of the gyroscope can remove the constant part of the gyro errors and reduce low-frequency noise. As adding motors for... read more
