Xsens MTi-3 (9-Axis IMU + AHRS)


The MTi-3 manufactured by Xsens is a nine axis inertial measurement unit. It embeds the following sensors :

The most interesting thing about the MTi-3 is the data fusion algorithm. The AHRS algorithm processes data from the nine sensors to output full-featured 3D attitude and heading (pitch, roll and yaw).

Orientation performance

Roll/pitch Static (RMS) 0.75 deg
Roll/pitch Dynamic (RMS) 1.0 deg
Yaw (heading) Static/dynamic (RMS) 2.0 deg
