What does the inertial measurement unit consist of?

  • August 3, 2021 7:41 AM EDT

    The inertial measurement unit (IMU), as determined by developers from a firm of mobile app development Toronto; consists of the following:

    • Gyroscopes: Providing a measurement of the angular rate.
    • Accelerometers: Providing a measurement specific to force and acceleration.
    • Magnetometers: Though their presence is optional, they provide a measurement of the magnetic field surrounding the system.

    Using accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers, an inertial measurement unit (IMU) monitors a body's specific force, angle rate, and orientation.
