ACEINNA announced its OpenIMU300RI rugged, sealed-package, open source IMU sensor designed for autonomous off road, construction, agricultural and automotive vehicle applications.
This nine-degree-of-freedom (9-DOF) inertial measurement unit allows engineers to optimize an attitude, navigation or other algorithm for their vehicle/application and run it in on the IMU.
The OpenIMU300RI open source IMU sensor minimizes communication on the bus and frees-up their processor to do other things, or to even use a less expensive processor. The IMU or processed IMU data can be used for a number of applications including keeping a cab level, returning an arm to a specific position, keeping a bucket stable while traveling, locking out control for safety applications, and supplementing GNSS data to keep a tractor on course.
The sensor features a sealed rugged module with CAN and RS232 interface through an IP67 Ampseal 16 connector while running a professional-grade open-source navigation stack supported by ACEINNA’s free Navigation Studio.
Because of its rugged design, the sensor can be mounted directly on construction and agriculture vehicles and attachments, which are exposed to the elements during operation or storage. It has an Ampseal 6 position IP67 rated connector. The module is completely over molded in plastic and features nickel-plated brass bushings for mounting. Input power conditioning and protection circuitry is designed for and is qualified for use on 12 V and 24 V vehicles. It supports input voltages between 5 and 32 V.
Each OpenIMU300RI is calibrated on precision rate tables and in temperature chambers providing trustworthy 3D linear acceleration, 3D rotation rate, and 3D magnetic field measurement information.
