Industrial IMUs Improve Autonomous Machine Performance

Analog Devices introduces five high-performance inertial measurement units (IMUs) that address the navigation- and safety-related needs of industrial applications in several emerging markets, while also reducing their system complexity and cost. The ADIS16470, ADIS16475 and ADIS16477 IMUs deliver performance improvements in small packages with standard surface mount assembly.

 

The three different models are optimized to provide a range of performance, cost, and application-suitability needs. The ADIS16465 and ADIS16467 IMUs offer similar performance advantages in a more ruggedized enclosure option. Together, these product advancements bring a previously unavailable performance-for-cost ratio to unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications where designers have previously struggled with costly, risky, and sub-par performance solutions from integrating consumer grade sensors, which also fell short of reliability goals. The IMUs bring the same benefits to Autonomous Machine applications in fields such as Smart Agriculture where the demands of such rugged equipment previously forced a choice between cost-challenged, highest-grade sensors or performance-limited commercial sensors.
