Thanks to its precision position, velocity, and attitude sensing capabilities, KVH Industries' CG-5100 small-form-factor inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a versatile solution suitable for stabilization, navigation, and autonomous vehicle applications. With its integration of two reliable navigation components—KVH fiber-optic gyros and MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) accelerometers—the CG-5100 provides a solution for inertial measurement within a single, compact enclosure. Packaged for flexible installation in situations where space is at a premium, the CG-5100's low cost makes precision motion sensing, navigation, and GPS augmentation available to a broad array of commercial applications. The device achieves its performance by employing algorithms to a fully combined digital gyro and accelerometer output, enabling the system to characterize and correct for the effects of temperature and misalignment.
