IMU technology is a key component of the ADAS navigation and safety systems in self-driving vehicles. In conventional environments, sensing sensors (LIDAR, cameras, radar, odometers, etc.) are used to ensure that the vehicle is traveling on the correct path. However, if a sensing sensor fails due to vehicle position or external environmental influences, the IMU can assist in keeping the vehicle on the desired path until the data from the sensing sensor is re-engaged or the vehicle is safely stopped.
ACEINNA's latest IMU330RA is a high precision, low latency IMU that balances precise positioning and safety, designed for developers of self-driving cars, self-driving cabs and delivery vehicles, and ADAS systems.
