3-axis Geomagnetic Sensor with Angular Velocity Detection

Posted on January 10, 2010 at 5:18pm 8 Comments

Here is a new sensor which could improve stabilisation of our drones.

It is purely a Geomagnetic Sensor however it can output rotation rate just like a gyro. It might even be possible to create an IMU type module using only this sensor and an accelerometer. That would be economical!


- Angular velocity detection and electronic compass functions in a single component made compatible by utilizing ALPS’s proprietary… Continue
