Product Overview

The YEI 3-Space Sensor™ Bluetooth integrates a miniature, high-precision, high-reliability, Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) / Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) with a 2.4GHz Bluetooth v2.0+EDR Class 1 interface and a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery solution into a single low-cost end-use-ready unit. The Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) / Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) uses triaxial gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass sensors in conjunction with advanced processing and on-board quaternion-based Kalman filtering algorithms to determine orientation relative to an absolute reference in real-time.

Orientation can be returned in absolute terms or relative to a designated reference orientation. The proprietary multireference vector mode increases accuracy and greatly reduces and compensates for sensor error. The YEI 3-Space Sensor Bluetooth system also utilizes a dynamic sensor confidence algorithm that ensures optimal accuracy and precision across a wide range of operating conditions.

YEI 3-Space Sensor Bluetooth

The YEI 3-Space Sensor Bluetooth unit features are accessible via a well-documented open communication protocol that allows access to all available sensor data and configuration parameters using either 2.4Ghz Bluetooth or USB 2.0 interfaces. Versatile commands allow access to raw sensor data, normalized sensor data, and filtered absolute and relative orientation outputs in multiple formats including: quaternion, Euler angles (pitch/roll/yaw), rotation matrix, axis angle, two vector (forward/up).
