Xsens miniature inertial measurement systems are very compact sensors for all types of applications: vehicle attitude measurement in 3D space, drone navigation, motion capture, antenna pointing, etc.
IMU = Raw data from accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers
VRU = IMU + Roll and Pitch via the internal Kalman filter
AHRS = VRU + Magnetic heading via the internal Kalman filter
INS/GNSS = AHRS + GNSS position and velocity
INS/GNSS = AHRS + RTK position and GNSS velocity
Each MTi series consists of several versions, from the IMU version providing raw data only to the AHRS version, for high-accuracy attitude and heading measurements with a high update rate. The addition of an internal GNSS receiver enhances the inertial orientation calculation by adding GNSS position and velocity measurements.
The MEMS raw data is available at a very high rate, and is converted in real time via the internal Kalman filter into high-quality orientation data (heading, roll, pitch), stable over time.
Our philosophy is to support our clients at all key stages of their projects.
