"Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU) & Motion Capture System "


The MTi is a miniature, gyro-enhanced Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS). Its internal low-power signal processor provides drift-free 3D orientation as well as calibrated 3D acceleration, 3D rate of turn (rate gyro) and 3D earth-magnetic field data. The MTi is an excellent measurement unit for stabilization and control of cameras, robots, vehicles and other equipment.

The standard version MTi has a full scale acceleration of 5g, full scales of 1.7g and 10g are still available as well.

Working principles

The MTi uses 3 rate gyros to track rapidly changing orientations in 3D and it measures the directions of gravity and magnetic north to provide a stable reference. The systems real-time algorithm fuses the sensor information to calculate accurate 3D orientation, with a highly dynamic response and stable over time.

With the MTi Development Kit, the MTi can easily be integrated in any system or (OEM) application.
