Abstract: Inertial measuring Unit (IMU) is anintegrated chip that has an on-board accelerometer and gyroscope. Theapplication using this chip is infinite and vivid, this paper dives into theautomation paradigm of the IMU and we intend to develop a system that enablesan automobile to drive through a bumpy road with ease and smoothness. Thevalues provided by the IMU gives a steady reference with respect to the groundfor the microprocessor to process the information and adjust the position ofwheels.Keywords: IMU, Accelerometer,Gyroscope, DoF, Yaw, Pitch, Roll, Axis. I. Introduction This project will serve as aprototype which can be further implemented in large scale with help of thisunit we are able to track position an object to which this unit is attached in real-timeThis project can be related to handgesture project, but this project has a capability to track as well as logposition parameters as well Power management has been one of the mostdiscussed topic in the past decade because of the decrease in the energyreserves.
Power shutdown is a major problem now-a-days and it occurs because alot of power is wasted in industries. 1.1 Importanceof the project and its background: ? Real time tracking? Accurate results? Data recording? EnergySaving II.
Methodology Realtime motion tracking technology is the upcoming high end technology. Wirelesstransmission of the coordinates after processing various parameters like linearacceleration, angular momentum, magnetic flux after its integration into aprocessor, which provides the position of the object to which the IMU isattached.We have designed this project withminimum external modules and peripherals making it cost effectiveA. Types of IMUIMU available in market now are invarious types and shape. So, user can select what type, size and shape. The IMUcan be selected from its degrees of freedom (DOF) that being developed bymanufacturer. User can select from three DOF, five DOF and six DOF. For threeDOF, the sensors configurations are two accelerometers and a gyroscope thatmeasures yaw.
For five DOF, the sensors configurations are three accelerometersand two gyroscopes that measure pitch and roll. For six DOF, all axes foraccelerometer and gyroscope for measurement are available.A. AboutMPU-6050 Six-Axis (Gyro + Accelerometer)The MPU-6050 devices combine a3-axis gyroscope and a 3-axis accelerometer on the same silicon die, togetherwith an on board Digital Motion Processor™ (DMP™), which processes complex6-axis Motion Fusion algorithms. The device can access external magnetometersor other sensors through an auxiliary master I²C bus, allowing the devices togather a full set of sensor data without intervention from the systemprocessor.
The devices are offered in a 4 mm x 4 mm x 0.9 mm QFN package.
