Inertial Measurement Unit

The Inertial Measurement Unit provides the vehicle’s current movement status to all requesting devices. The verified signals of yaw, pitch and roll rate and longitudinal, lateral and vertical acceleration are transmitted to the data bus via standardized interface.  The signals are used in complex control algorithms to enhance comfort and safety applications for passenger and commercial vehicles (e.g. ESC, ADAS, AD) as well as for motorcycles (optimized curve ABS), industry and agricultural vehicles.
