MEMS IMUs in Autonomous Vehicle Navigation

MEMS IMUs often serve as feedback sensing elements, within the Guidance Navigation Control (GNC) systems for Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGV). This session will provide a functional overview of the IMU's role in these systems, with specific emphasis on crucial performance metrics and key funciotns, wihch are often overlooked and under-emphasized, during conceptual and architectural development phases for emerging AGV systems.
