ACEINNA announced its new OpenIMU300RI. A rugged, sealed-package, open-source, nine-degree-of-freedom inertial measurement unit for autonomous off road, construction, agricultural and automotive vehicle applications. This new open-source IMU, allows engineers to easily optimize an attitude, navigation or other algorithm for their vehicle/application and run it in on the IMU. This minimizes communication on the bus and frees-up their processor to do other things, or to even use a less expensive processor. The IMU or processed IMU data can be used for many applications including keeping a cab level, returning an arm to a specific position, keeping a bucket stable while traveling, locking out control for safety applications, supplementing GNSS data to keep a tractor on course, etc.

The new OpenIMU300RI adds a sealed rugged module with CAN and RS232 interface through an IP67 Ampseal 16 connector to the product line running the breakthrough professional-grade open-source navigation stack supported by ACEINNA’s free Navigation Studio. It complements Aceinna’s popular OpenIMU300ZA 9-DOF IMU OEM module, which has SPI and UART interfaces.

Each OpenIMU300RI is calibrated on precision rate tables and in temperature chambers providing trustworthy 3D linear acceleration, 3D rotation rate, and 3D magnetic field measurement information to designers of autonomous vehicle and other control systems.

Mr James Fennelly, Product Manager at ACEINNA said that “Different vehicle platforms have different dynamics. To get the best performance, the attitude, navigation or other algorithm needs to be tailored for each vehicle platform and application. The ACEINNA OpenIMU300RI open-source platform gives designers a flexible and simple-to-integrate IMU solution that can be easily optimized for a wide range of vehicles and applications.”
