Introducing IMUcore

IMUcore is the central algorithm working inside all LP-RESEARCH IMUs. It collects orientation data from several sources and combines them into fast and drift-free tilt and direction information. To work with any type of MEMS sensor, various online and offline calibration methods have been implemented to guarantee high quality data output. The algorithm is very versatile and performance-saving. It can be implemented on embedded MCUs with minimum power consumption.

IMUcore is now available as a solution from LP-RESEARCH. Please contact us here for more information or a price quotation.

Sensor Fusion Filter Overview

IMUcore uses gyroscope data as basis information to calculate orientation. Errors introduced through measurement noise are corrected by accelerometer and compass data. Optionally the sensor fusion can be extended with an optical (or other) tracking system to additionally provide position information.
