At XPONENTIAL 2017, Inertial Sense announces the release of the world's smallest GPS aided inertial navigation system set for this summer

The μINS is a tiny sensor module that is designed to provide high-quality direction, position, and velocity data for drones and robotic applications.

DALLAS, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Inertial Sense announced today at XPONENTIAL that they will be releasing a high-quality, low-cost navigation system later this summer: the "μINS". Historically, quality GPS inertial navigation has been expensive and were only designed into a small number of systems. As the commercial and consumer drone industries grow, the need for an accurate, low-cost navigation system has become more apparent. Inertial Sense engineers have invented a patent pending design that enables this technology to be smaller and less expensive than any commercial predecessor.


The μINS is a tiny sensor module that is designed to provide high-quality direction, position, and velocity data for drones and robotic applications. It provides this data by fusing sensor data from GPS (GNSS), gyros, accelerometers, magnetometers, and a barometric pressure sensor. Inertial Sense employees will be displaying the μINS at their XPONENTIAL booth (#2011) for the duration of the show. All attendees at the show are invited to visit their booth and see this new and revolutionary technology. Other interested parties should visit inertialsense.com for more information.

Inertial Sense is a privately-owned US company that specializes in designing and manufacturing low-cost, high-performance GPS inertial navigation technology for commercial and consumer products.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
