The Inertial LabsTM OS3D is a multi-purpose miniature 3D orientation sensor designed for use in real-time orientation tracking applications. It includes three types of sensing elements: tri-axial MEMS Gyroscopes, tri-axial MEMS Accelerometers, and tri-axial magneto-resistive Magnetometers. The OS3D also comes equipped with an onboard processor and embedded orientation algorithms allowing for direct integration into systems without interfacing a PC. Additionally, for PC-based integrations, the system comes with a set of libraries that allow the customer to modify algorithm and/or sensor parameters on-the-fly to more closely match the needs of individual applications.
