Move up with the next-generation IMU Board with new improved sensors. The ADIS16470 IMU is one of ADI's newest iSensor products. Just like the ADIS16448, this IMU gives your robot the ability to calculate its position in 3D space. This IMU packs a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope. The board has two mounting holes to secure the board to the RoboRIO so you don't have to worry about vibration or losing your sensor in the middle of a match. This sensor has the lowest drift of any ADI board for FRC, giving your team industry-level performance.
Gyroscopes and accelerometers are game-changers for your robot, providing precise measurement of motion and rotation to help your robot better navigate the field. The ADXRS450 gyroscope featured on this board is used in applications such as industrial automation, wearable activity trackers, and robotics far beyond FRC.

Check out the ADI Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The ADIS16448 IMU gives the RoboRIO the ability to calculate its position in 3D space. The unit packs gyroscopes, accelerometers, a barometer, and a magnetometer into a small and robust housing designed for robotics. Each unit is individually calibrated for peak performance. The device featured on this board is part of the ADI iSensor family, used in applications like UAVs, surgical robots, and even concussion detection.
