The primary uses for inertial sensors are platform stability and global positioning, but we are seeing increasing use as feedback in articulated limbs.
An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that directly measures the three linear acceleration components and the three rotational rate components (6-DOF) of a vehicle.
OTTO self-driving vehicles depend on three different sensors to identify its current position as well as to navigate where and how it needs to travel from point A to point B. As in any dense and dynamic environment, elements in OTTO's path can change minute to minute
The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point
Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.
The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.
When the sensor is integrated into a wearable device and placed across a joint, it is stretched when the joint moves. We can correlate the joint's movement and sensor's capacitance change in order to monitor motion.
