Six-axis motion-tracking IMUs for drones and robotics applications

02-06-2020 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

TDK InvenSense ICM-42688-P Six-Axis Motion-Tracking IMUs, available now from Mouser, offer ultrasonic-based obstacle detection regardless of object colour, materials, and ambient lighting conditions. The IMUs supply sensing without causing privacy or safety concerns. These motion sensors give near-range sensing that includes the blind zones of solutions based on computer vision or lidar. These accurate, low-noise devices are created for use in robotics applications and drones.

The devices provide ultra-low noise and exceptional relative accuracy, with excellent gyroscope temperature stability.

Typical applications include industrial robotics, consumer robotics and drones.
