Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    Unmanned ground vehicles frequently require the ability to operate in an automated or autonomous mode without direct inputs from a manned operator. As with manned vehicles, the on-board control systems require highly accurate data on the position, heading, speed, orientation, pitch, and roll, as well as data on other parameters such as temperature and vibration. Even when a remote operator is in direct control he is often relying purely on sensor data. This sensor data is critical to the ability of the system to operate.

    Accelerometers and Gyros are key tools to provide significant data monitoring capabilities and inputs into a vehicle control system.
