How does an inertial measurement unit work?
Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) use gyroscopes and accelerometers to sense rotation and acceleration. They can be used in any application for which it’s important to accurately measure and compensate for vibration and motion under the most challenging conditions. In addition to helping stabilize antennas and cameras, IMUs are also used on robots, autonomous vehicles and drones that require navigation in the absence of external aiding signals.
