ACEINNA announces OpenIMUTM - a first of its kind professionally supported, open-source GPS/GNSS-aided inertial navigation software stack for low-cost precise navigation applications. Whether you are developing autonomously guided vehicles for industrial applications, autonomous cars, factory or industrial robots, drones, ROVs, any kind of smart machine which needs to move – fast or slow, on land, in the air, or in water, integrating an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) based sensor network will greatly improve its navigation and self-location capabilities. “Our breakthrough open-source Software for INS/GPS algorithm development is the first professional grade open-source navigation stack running on a low-cost IMU,” explains Mike Horton, CTO of ACEINNA. “Not only will this kit save developers time and money, it is simple to use and does not require a PHd.” OpenIMU enables advanced, easy-to-deploy localization and navigation algorithm solutions for a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. OpenIMU's combination of open-source software and low-cost hardware enables rapid development of advanced solutions for drones, robotics, and autonomous applications. OpenIMU's extensible software-infrastructure provides all the code needed for algorithm development. This freely downloadable stack includes: * FreeRTOS-based data collection and sampling engine
To install OpenIMU stack now, follow the directions at https://developers.aceina.com. Several ready to install free GPS/INS and IMU applications are available on ACEINNA’s Navigation app store at https://developers.aceinna.com/apps
The OpenIMU Development hardware development kit includes JTAG-pod, precision mount fixture, EVB, and an OpenIMU300 module. The OpenIMU module features ACEINNA’s 5 deg/Hr, 9-Axis gyro, accelerometer, and magnetometer sensor suite with an onboard 180MHz ARM Coretex floating-point CPU. The IMU is delivered in a small (24x37x9.5mm), easy to integrate module that operates from 2.7-5.5VDC.
The OpenIMU Development kit is available for immediate delivery. Please visit https://www.aceinna.com/openimu for more information including datasheet, pricing, the ACEINNA developer website, the Visual Studio Code extension, etc.
