Honeywell HGuide Inertial Sensors and Navigators
Honeywell’s HGuide micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) inertial measurement units (IMUs) and inertial navigation systems are non-ITAR, and are specifically designed for industrial applications.
Honeywell is the world leader in high-performance IMUs and inertial navigation systems. Our HGuide product line features a variety of different products at multiple price and performance options, designed to meet the needs of every user.
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.
An inertial navigation system (INS) is comprised of an IMU, a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver and sensor fusion software. These components work together to calculate position, orientation, and velocity to deliver critical navigation information in GNSS-denied areas like urban canyons, bridges, tunnels, mountains, parking garages and dense forests.
