MicroStrain™ IMU Inertial Measurement Unit
High performance and industrial grade devices that produce accurate measurements in dynamic conditionsContact Us
An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that integrates multi-axes, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and other sensors to provide estimation of an objects orientation in space. Measurements of acceleration, angular rate, and attitude are typical data outputs. Microstrain’s IMU inertial sensors are commonly used in robot dynamic motion and terrain compensation, payload platform stabilization, and antenna and camera pointing applications.

IMU Sensors in Different Performance Levels and Packaging
Our Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) include direct measurement of acceleration and angular rate, are fully temperature-compensated and calibrated over the operating temperature and use MEMS gyro and accelerometer technology to create highly accurate, small, lightweight devices. Available options for different performance levels and packaging enable you to select the right sensor for a wide range of applications, including construction and Agricultural vehicles, UGVs and robotics.
High Performance Industrial Grade IMU Solutions
Our high performance industrial grade IMU sensors can be used in off highway inclinometer and mobile robot applications that require dynamic roll/pitch accuracy, low sensitivity to vibration and temperature, and low latency.
High Performance & Industrial Grade OEM IMU Solutions
Precise and robust in challenging environments, Microstrain’s high performance, industrial grade OEM IMU sensors provide accurate and reliable data, processing multiple degrees of freedom in highly complex applications. Microstrain OEM sensors offer the option of a smaller, lighter and affordable solution in customer preferred packaging and board design.
Because they can be programmed to perform dangerous, dirty and/or repetitive tasks with consistent precision and accuracy, industrial robots are increasingly used in a variety of industries and applications. Using Microstrain IMU within an industrial robot, allows for real time stability and terrain compensation.
Navigation subsystems are integral to the performance of unmanned ground vehicles. Conventional, high-performance navigation systems support unmanned solutions but are limited in their application due to their size, weight, power consumption, and cost concerns. Microstrain IMU's provide unmanned ground vehicles with the information required to reliably navigate unstructured settings in a low-power, cost effective manner.
Construction, Mining and Agriculture vehicles are exposed to harsh and variable operating conditions. Understanding the exposure of individual vehicles is critical for maximizing up-time and optimizing maintenance practices. Microstrain's IMU offer dynamic inclination detection, real-time vehicle stability control and terrain compensation in a ruggedized package to reliably provide the vehicle with the information needed.
