What is an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)?


An IMU is made up of six complimentary sensors arrayed on three orthogonal axes, each axes has an accelerometer and gyroscope which allows an IMU to measure its precise relative movement in 3D space.

How do IMUs Work?


The accelerometers measure linear acceleration and the gyroscopes measure rotational acceleration. This information allows the IMU to measure its precise relative movement in 3D space. IMU measurements are also able to provide an angular solution about the three axes.
