Aceinna launches new IMU for autonomous vehicles
Aceinna has launched its new OpenIMU330B, an inertial measurement unit (IMU) that enables autonomous vehicles to accurately stay on track during turns and complicated manoeuvres.
Measuring just 11mm x 15mm x 3mm, the small unit is designed for use in automotive advanced driver assistance and autonomous systems, based on triple-redundant architecture that meets the performance, reliability and cost requirements of these markets.
‘This is the first and only affordable, highly compact and triple redundant IMU module on the market,’ Mike Horton, CTO of Aceinna, said.
By embedding a triple-redundant sensor array, the OpenIMU330 is able to use the company’s proprietary voting scheme to utilise only valid sensor data, it says.
Any defective sensor output or errant dataset can be ignored or de-rated in importance, which provides quality and improves the performance.
