9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout: a Bosch revolution
Although the sensor with 9 degrees of freedom is a great invention, its user has to create the most complex algorithms to successfully merge all of the data relating to speed, rotation, inclination, etc. before being able to accurately track orientation in a 3D environment. This is no longer a problem thanks to this BNO055 component created by Bosch, which integrates the 3 sensors found traditionally in an inertial measurement unit – a gyroscope, magnetometer and accelerometer – as well as a processor capable of performing all the necessary calculations instantly!
An Arduino-compatible Adafruit IMU for all your 3D applications
Technically speaking, the data provided by all these sensors pass through the “centrifuge”, in other words the ARM Cortex-M0 processor, to convert them into information that can be used immediately in the form of quaternions, Euler angles, etc. Data flows are managed by an I2C connection at a frequency of between 1 and 100 Hz, depending on the sensor.
