Case Study with Alstom – ASC Sensors Put to the Test
Case Study: Alstom carries out testing using sensors from ASC to ensure both safety and comfort in rail transport.
Whether for track monitoring, the navigation of drones, ships and robots, or producing map material (mobile mapping), the new IMU 8 from ASC has versatile deployment possibilities.
With a bias stability of 0.12°/hr and an angular random walk of 0.017°/√hr, this Inertial Measurement Unit is optimally suited to high-precision position determination in multiple applications.
The capacitive MEMS accelerometer of the IMU is available with measurement ranges from +/- 2g to +/- 30g, and offers amplitude deviation of <0.5% FSO and a signal noise of 7µg/√Hz in the 2g measurement range.
