Lord Corporation has partnered with Clearpath Robotics to introduce inertial sensors to the Clearpath research unmanned platform, the company announced on 20 May.

Lord's inertial sensors will enhance the autonomous capabilities of Clearpath’s robots for precise navigation in applications such as 3D mapping in difficult terrain.

Lord’s inertial sensors are fully calibrated and temperature compensated to deliver advanced real-world performance under conditions of temperature variation, shock and vibration.

Clearpath will provide Lord inertial sensors to academic and corporate research organisations on its mobile unmanned systems for survey and inspection, oil and gas, agriculture, materials handling and other applications. Lord inertial sensors provide dynamic position and orientation information to determine robot heading, as well as roll and pitch accuracy.

Jim Toscano, senior business development manager, LORD Sensing, said: ‘The partnership between Lord and Clearpath gives users a full array of state-of-the-art inertial sensors available for direct integration on Clearpath platforms or from the Clearpath components store. Assembling a highly capable autonomous robot has never been easier.’
