IMU Sensor

IMU Sensor

  • 01. IMU Sensor

    The IMU sensor used in the PIXY F is a combination of a high precision 3 axis gyroscope sensor and a 3 axis accelerometer sensor.

    IMU board is being heated where the temperature inside is controlled around 50°C with 0.2°C accuracy. Thanks to this feature, gyro calibration is no longer required in most situations.

    The PIXY F controller has a special algorithm to provide attitude estimation based on input data from the IMU sensor. This attitude estimation helps the controller to command motor output to compensate for camera movement.

  • 02. Gypro Calibration

    Thanks to temperature controlled and heated IMU, gyro calibration is not necessary as the gyro was calibrated at the factory and the temperature inside IMU remains constant around 50 degrees. However, if you notice drift during operation in extreme weather (below -20C or above 50C) please re-calibrate the gyro.

    CALIB AT STARTUP: this feature is not available on the PIXY F

    After Gyro Calibration, Gyro Offset X, Y, Z will change to a new value depending on the temperature.

  • 03. Accelerometter Calibration

    Do not use this function, please contact Gremsy Support Engineers. Accelerometer sensor was calibrated properly at the factory to achieve accurate horizon level with special and precise equipment. Users do not need to do this unless it’s required for troubleshooting.
