Ellipse Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) provides calibrated and very low noise gyroscopes and accelerometers at 1,000 Hz to precisely stabilize the camera.

When using the Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), filtered attitude is used as well, for camera pointing for example.

Tips

Low latency between a physical motion and output is very important in this type of application, additionally to a high bandwidth, and a precise synchronisation. Ellipse sensors show a total latency of less than 3 ms between motion and output, are carefully designed with signal conditionning and fir filtering to provide very low latency and a high bandwidth while protecting the measurement from vibrations. Finally, we also pay attention to gyroscopes to accelerometers synchronization and timing to achieve the best accuracy.

SBG inertial sensors are highly resistant to shock and vibration. They also embed specific algorithms to filter vibration. When choosing the right inertial sensor, note that the A3 accelerometer (16g) is the right option for harsh environments.

SBG Ellipse IMU delivers a 1,000 Hz raw data with very low latency. Data are highly reliable as every sensor is extensively calibrated in temperature, from -40 to +85°C.

The Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) outputs gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers raw data. The Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) embeds an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to deliver orientation data, and the Inertial Navigation System (INS) additionally embeds a GNSS receiver for a filtered position in real-time.
