The UM7 orientation sensor from Redshift Labs is an Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) that contains a three-axis accelerometer, rate gyro, and magnetometer. It combines this data using an Extended Kalman Filter to produce attitude and heading estimates.
The UM7 orientation sensor is a third-generation Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) from Redshift Labs that produces attitude and heading estimates from triaxial accelerometer, rate gyro, and magnetometer data. Unlike a typical inertial measurement unit (IMU), which only provides raw sensor readings, the UM7 features an onboard microcontroller that combines sensor data using a sophisticated Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) to generate orientation estimates 500 times a second.
Two versions of the UM7 are available: the UM7 orientation sensor, which includes an enclosure, and the UM7-LT, which does not. The two versions are functionally equivalent, and both include a cable.
The UM7 features a number of improvements over its predecessor, the UM6, including higher gyro bias stability and lower noise, a new communication architecture for improved flexibility, optional NMEA packet transmission, UTC time-synchronization with external GPS, and support for third-order temperature compensation on all sensors. It takes advantage of newer MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology that allows it to offer better performance at a lower price.
Connections for power and TTL serial communication can be made to the UM7-LT through a polarized five-pin male connector on one side, which mates with an included cable assembly. A pair of six-pin expansion headers on the other side of the board provide additional connectivity options, including an alternative SPI interface and a secondary serial interface that can be connected to an external GPS module (like our LS20031 GPS receiver). Additional cable assemblies for the expansion headers are not included.
Sensors and processing
- Excellent gyro bias stability over temperature
- Adjustable low-pass filter and EKF settings provide customizable performance for various applications
- States and sensor data synchronized to GPS position and velocity using optional external GPS module
- Allows for alignment calibration and third-order bias and scale factor temperature compensation for accelerometers, gyros, and magnetometer
- Magnetometer soft and hard-iron calibration can be performed through the CHR serial interface software
- Output data:
- Attitude and heading (Euler angles)
- Attitude quaternion
- magnetometer, accelerometer, gyro data
- GPS altitude, position, velocity (with optional external GPS)
- 3.3 V TTL serial interface (UART) with baud rates up to 921,600 bps can stream data or provide updates on request
- Note: the main UART pins, TX, and RX, are 5V-tolerant and can be directly connected to 5 V systems that are guaranteed to read 3.3 V as high
- Transmits data using human-readable NMEA strings (up to 100 Hz broadcast), binary packets for higher efficiency (up to 255 Hz broadcast), or a combination of both
- Flexible communication architecture allows UM7 to transmit any combination of data at individually adjustable rates
