How to Lose Money When Buying an IMU Sensor

Purchasing an Inertial Measurement Unit, more commonly referred to as an IMU sensor, can be a tricky process. Because the price range and capabilities of these autonomous devices can vary so widely, it is easy to overspend on IMUs that may not be suited to your specific set of needs. At Inertial Sense, we offer […]

What’s The Difference Between GPS and GPS INS?

What is the difference between a GPS and a GPS INS or a GPS-aided inertial navigation system? Watch the video below as Walt explains the difference between basic GPS and GPS with INS, plus he gives some insider secrets!  GPS can only give you position and update rates are provided at a slower speed. […]

What’s The Difference Between Autonomous Robots and Controlled Robots?

An autonomous robot versus a controlled robot can operate the same, but the robot brain is much different. Watch the below as Josh explains the big difference between autonomous and controlled robots.  Now let’s take a look at autonomous robots versus controlled robots. An autonomous robot has the capability to move on its own, […]

What is Dual Compassing? (RTK Compassing)

GPS Compassing is taking two GPS antennas and using them on a baseline with one another to give a heading. Watch the video below as Carson explains how RTK and dual compassing work together.  Inside a sensor, the IMU contains a magnetometer. This sensor tells the system which direction it is facing and gives it […]

The Worst Interference Elements to Shield Your Rover From

Inertial navigation within robotics is notoriously susceptible to all kinds of interference and technical problems that can cause drift at best, and collision at worst. This article aims to help you be aware of some of the most problematic interference elements from various signals and some helpful approaches to preventing and solving them.   Interference […]

What Does Autonomous Mean In Robotics?

You might have thought, “what does autonomous mean in robotics?” In the world of autonomy, we not only want technology that is self-sufficient but can learn to grow on its own. Watch the video below as Jason gives a brief overview of what is new at Inertial Sense.  So, what does autonomous in robotics […]

The Difference Between GPS & GNSS

A question as old as time is, what is the difference between GPS and GNSS. Watch this video below as Carson breaks it down.  One of the vital pieces to the Inertial Sense navigation system is GPS, or as we know it across the world, as GNSS. GPS stands for global positioning system. GNSS […]

Path Generation, Coverage Paths & Autonomy

Autonomy has come such a long way. And we are on such a path that autonomous technology is advancing rather quickly, including the creation of path generation & coverage paths for robots. Watch the video below as Joshua gives an overview of autonomous technology’s growth. One of the approaches we are taking with the luna […]

RTK Rover & Base – What’s The Difference Between RTK and DGPS?

You ever wonder what the difference between RTK base stations and differential GPS (DGPS) is, and how the two can operate together? Watch the video below as Walt breaks down how the two work together to give accurate information and data.  How RTK GPS works is you have two GPS systems, a rover and […]

You Must Be Good at Sensors Before You Take On Autonomy

Getting into autonomy can be fun and exciting. Navigating a robotic device with precision can be adventurous with just about any autonomous platform. But understanding the bones of autonomy is just as important. Watch this video as Tom explains understanding sensors to understand and take on autonomy.  One of the reasons that our customers […]
