KVH looks to self-driving cars with inertial sensor plans

April 6, 2016By
KVH’s high-precision FOG is key to a driverless car’s performance. In this photo, the red illumination represents light moving through the FOG’s optical circuit of coiled fiber; this circuit is the FOG’s sensing unit — it is mounted with power and processing electronics within a driverless car to provide precise data for the car’s navigation systems.

KVH Industries is developing a fiber optic gyro (FOG)-based, low-cost inertial sensor for self-driving cars. The company also released a Developer’s Kit to assist design engineers with integrating FOG technology into driverless car control systems. FOGs and FOG-based inertial measurement units (IMUs) are key parts of the sensor mechanisms that are essential for highly accurate autonomous car performance, KVH said.... read more

Xsens Adds Active Heading Stabilization to IMU

April 2, 2015By

In the latest update of its Motion Tracker product portfolio, Xsens has added active heading stabilization (AHS) to its core sensor fusion algorithms on the MTi 10-series and MTi 100-series. Both series are MEMS-based inertial measurement units (IMU), attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS), and vertical reference units (VRUs). The AHS algorithm delivers fundamentally improved heading tracking accuracy, Xsens said. The improved robustness in... read more
