Abstract

Inertial measurement units (IMUs) are widely used for navigation and calibration purposes on unmanned autonomous vehicles. This paper provides a comparative survey and evaluation of the low-cost IMUs focusing on both the possible sensor packages and the available software solutions. Several example IMUs are compared in detail including inertial only IMUs, GPS-coupled IMUs, and hobbyist-level IMUs. The future direction of low-cost IMUs are discussed including optical-flow-based solutions and collaborative IMUs.
