Angular Rate and Acceleration Measurement
Systron Donner Automotive Div. introduces its Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that can simultaneously detect both angular-rate and acceleration along multiple axes. Packaged in a rugged housing, the device includes solid-state MEMS gyroscopes, accelerometers, a CAN interface, power conditioning and a microcontroller, all configured to meet the sensing and packaging requirements of any OEM or Tier 1 supplier. With its ability to provide fully-compensated digital data, the IMU can take the place of many other sensors throughout a vehicle. It includes the proprietary Continuous Built-In Test for continuous monitoring of sensor health and simultaneous rate sensing. The IMU is factory calibrated and fully compensated.
