An Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is a sophisticated device that plays a pivotal role in tracking and measuring an object's orientation, velocity, and gravitational forces.
From space launches to the minute movements of your smartphone as you navigate city streets, and even guiding drones through the skies, IMUs are the silent navigators behind these processes.
In this comprehensive guide, we're about to embark on a journey through the intricacies of IMUs, exploring their components, types, applications, and the leading manufacturers shaping this transformative field.
An Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), also known as an Inertial Reference Unit (IRU) or Motion Reference Unit (MRU), packs a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope, making it a 6-axis IMU. Some also include a 3-axis magnetometer, turning them into 9-axis IMUs.
