Demonstrating how integration is becoming a trend in lidar systems, Geosun, a developer of lidar for unmanned aerial systems (UAS), is integrating the inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors from Aceinna for future construction planning mapping operations via drones.

Aceinna’s OpenIMU330BI and IMU393 IMUs will be integrated into various lidar scanning systems from Geosun to help with navigation and guidance of airborne drone systems.

The IMUs provide up to 1.3 degrees per hour of accuracy. The IMUs are triple redundant and easy to integrate for guidance and navigation solutions for a range of self-driving devices such as mapping drones, robot delivery, self-driving cars, robo-taxis, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), electronic stability control, land keeping applications and more.
