May 4, 2015By

Jim Lau of Racelogic details the company’s GNSS Simulator and VBOX Speed Sensor IMU while at Unmanned Systems 2015, held May 4-7 in Atlanta. VOBX is a 100Hz dual antenna GPS/GLONASS speed sensor (VBSSISL) that combines signals from an integrated inertial measurement unit (IMU) with those from GPS to provide smoother output data even when satellite reception is interrupted. 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
